On Friday January 23 at approximately 9:00 a.m., there was a possible luring attempt that occurred at Mount Olivet Nursery School-5025 Knox Av S. A white male approximately 65 years old was standing in the hallway when parents were arriving to drop off their children at school. The male then tried to engage the children in conversation. When the children were beckoned to come to class, the suspect pulled stuffed toys out of a bag and asked them to come closer. At this point, the children were retrieved by a parent.
The male suspect left immediately following this incident and possibly left in a vehicle. The suspect is described as a white male, 65 years old, 6'00", medium build, white hair, balding, wearing a gray two-piece snow suit and gray knit cap. The suspect also appeared to be intoxicated. There is no description of the vehicle that suspect used.
