ELK GROVE, CA - The Elk Grove Police Department is investigating another report of a stranger approaching and offering a ride to a youth in our community. The incident took place at 5 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 4, near the corner of Matina Drive and Gilliam Drive.

A Toby Johnson Middle School student was walking home from a relative's house when a man pulled up alongside him and asked if he wanted a ride. The boy went onto the bike trail and the man drove away. The student did the right thing and reported the incident when he got home. His father reported the incident to the Elk Grove Police Department.

The man described as an African-American adult in his 40's with close-shaved hair, a scar under his right eye, a thin moustache and patches of facial hair. He was driving a full-sized utility-style van, with two front doors and a 3rd sliding door. The van appeared to be model from between 2000 to 2013.

 Elk Grove Unified School District and our principal from Franklin Elementary School, Sheila Caruthers sends out this message to our local community:

We are working with the Elk Grove Police Department (EGPD) to inform parents about a suspicious man who has reportedly tried to lure teenagers to his vehicle.  As you may recall, we sent home a letter to parents earlier this month about an incident that took place on October 16 at Whitelock Parkway and Schuler Ranch Road.  Today, EGPD informed the District that they are investigating four incidents that appear to be all related.  The following information details the four incidents:

On Saturday, October 12 at 2:30 p.m., a 13-year-old boy was walking in the area of Darley Way and Toscano Drive when a vehicle pulled up next to him.  The male driver attempted to engage the boy in conversation.  The boy did not respond and the vehicle drove away.
