WAUKEGAN, Ill. (CBS) — It’s unclear what his intentions were, but Waukegan police said they are investigating at least two incidents in which a man caused slow leaks in young women’s car tires, then offered to help them.
WBBM Newsradio’s Mike Krauser reports Alexa Colangelo was in the parking lot at Target in Waukegan, and heard a hissing sound, but didn’t realize right away that her tire was leaking.
She started to drive off, and noticed a white truck that had been parked next to her was following her.
Colangelo said the driver pulled up next to her to tell her she was getting a flat, and insisted on helping with the leak in her tire.
“The way he was talking, he was so sure how my tire was leaking,” she said. “He was very persistent on the matter of trying to help me, even when I said no.”
