Sheriff: Be aware of your surroundings

Local News

CHAMPAIGN COUNTY, Ill. (WCIA) — Sheriff Dan Walsh is warning people about a possible “stranger danger” encounter.

A teenaged girl was jogging in the area of Dobbins and Roland streets, about 2:30 pm, Tuesday. She told authorities a man in a vehicle tried to lure her over and initiate conversations several times.

She did not interact with the man but was concerned enough about his behavior to report him to authorities.

The suspect is described as a man in his 30’s, black, light-skinned complexion and bald. He was wearing a red shirt and sunglasses while driving a silver vehicle.

Authorities want people to call 911 immediately if you or your child should see something suspicious. They also suggest, if you’re able to safely get a license plate number, it could be helpful in any investigation.
