Second Child Abduction Attempt Reported In Algonquin School District

ALGONQUIN, Ill. (STMW) – Community Unit School District 300 in northwest suburban Algonquin is reminding parents to talk to their children about “the dangers of stranger interaction” after the second reported attempted child abduction within the district in the last two weeks.

Two Hispanic men in a vehicle described as a white van with no side windows reportedly approached a 13-year-old girl walking to her bus stop at about 9:30 a.m. Tuesday on Teton Parkway, just north of Glacier Parkway. The men asked the girl, a student at Algonquin Middle School, to get into the vehicle, according to a letter sent home this week with some District 300 students.

When the girl refused, telling them she wasn’t supposed to talk to strangers, the driver became “more verbally forceful,” according to the letter. The girl fled and told an adult, it said.

Algonquin police now are investigating the incident, District 300 Safety Officer Gary Chester said.

It is similar to an incident that occurred Tuesday, Jan. 3, in Carpentersville, just south of Tuesday’s reported abduction attempt. In that incident, two Hispanic men in a white van had approached a boy, also an Algonquin Middle School student, at his bus stop in Carpentersville’s Silverstone subdivision.

“There are some similarities there — the color, the fact it was a van and two Hispanic males. They can’t say for sure it was connected,” Chester said.

“We’re focused on notifying our parents and making sure they talk to their kids about stranger interaction.”

  • damn Mexicans

    I bet they were some low life Mexicans who can’t get real woman. I see it all the time old ass farts with young girls. I don’t understand why immigration people don’t do their jobs. I can look at a Mexican and tell you right off the bat he’s legal just by his stupidity. You see a old fart with a young girl, he’s illegal. Algonquin is not even that big why not drive around that place and look for the van. All you have to do is look in all those apartment complex’s they have out there. Swarming with illegals.

      • inalienablewrights

        Is it not ironic that the “free press” censors our speech here?

        Well it is not ironic when you realize they are just presstitutes who’s
        job it is – is to spread guberment propaganda and make it sound plausible.

    Incidents like this are so alarming and we should be vigilant especially that some just come out then and there. I am a parent and I am worried that I’ve been hearing a lot of the same news coming up and so I tried to find solutions and luckily I found one. It’s a solution which featured a safety app which gets me connected to a Safety Network or escalate my call to the nearest 911 when needed, it has other cool features that are helpful for your kids with just a press of a Panic Button.

    Isn’t this sort of humorous when by definition every child in the school is abducted there by the guberment for 6 hours of indoctrination every day?
