Police Alert: MIPD Warns of Suspicious Event

Submitted by MIPD Captain Dave Baer

On October 17, 2017 at approximately 3:08pm, a 12-year-old student was walking home from the Marco Island Charter Middle School and was approached by a male in a tan four-door vehicle with tinted windows (no other distinguishable information provided regarding the vehicle). The student described the male as having gray hair, a beard, glasses and a very thin body build. The male was last seen wearing a blue collared golf style shirt. The male pulled alongside of the female student and told her to come to his vehicle. When she ignored him, he screamed at her to come to his vehicle. She approached close enough to get a look at the driver, and the male asked if she needed a ride home. The student ran from the area and called her mother immediately. The student stated she has never seen the male or the vehicle in the area prior to this incident. Please contact the Marco Island Police Department if you have any additional information at (239) 389-5050.
