Suspicious Person- Tiffany Farms Subdivision
Antioch, IL – On Monday, July 24th at approximately 11:00am, the Antioch Police Department responded to the 500 block of Indian Trail Road, in the Tiffany Farms Subdivision, for a suspicious person investigation.
A parent contacted the police after their 8 and 11 year old children reported that while riding their bicycles in the neighborhood, a male subject in a vehicle drove slowly by them and appeared to take a photograph of them with his cellular phone. The subject was described as a white male, possibly in his 60’s, who had a gray or white beard. He was described as driving a full size silver sport utility vehicle that was pulling an open top trailer that may have been red in color.
Although this individual’s behavior is suspicious in nature, the Antioch Police want to address concerns circulating on social media that this incident involved an attempted luring of the children toward the vehicle. Based on statements from the involved, at no time did the subject in this incident make any alleged attempts to have contact with the children, nor did he attempt to engage them in any form of interaction.
The Antioch Police Department would like to ask that anyone having additional information about this incident contact the Investigations Division, and reminds community members to immediately report any and all suspicious activity by calling 911.
