Press release from LaPorte Police Department:

On Wednesday, Aug. 23, 2017, at approximately 3:30 p.m., LaPorte Police responded to the 400 block of Fox Street to investigate a report of a man who tried to lure three children into his vehicle. 

According to the children’s mother, all three children — ages 3, 4 and 12 — were playing in a neighbor’s yard when she saw an older model Honda Pilot (silver) pull up to where the children were. She said the man called the children over to his vehicle as he began taking off his seat belt. The 12-year-old told her mother that the man told all the children to get inside the SUV. The mother walked towards the SUV and yelled at the man. He then left the area and she called police. She told police she did not recognize the man or the vehicle he was driving.

The man was described as white, medium build, possibly in his mid-50s. He is balding on top with gray hair on the sides of his head.
