On September 19, 2020 at approximately 12:20 PM a 13 year old male was walking from Finnerty Place to the Washington Town Center. A light gray/beige pickup hooked up to an open landscape type trailer was parked facing East toward Woodfield Road. A driver was seated in the vehicle and another male was outside the vehicle. The male outside the vehicle approached the boy and told him to take his hand. The child said “no” and the actor took a step towards him and again told the child to take his hand. The child then ran into the Shopping Center. The vehicle is seen traveling East on Finnerty Place and then turns left and heads north on Woodfield Road.
