Madison Police Release Sketch of Suspect in Attempted Luring


Police have released a sketch of a man who tried to lure a juvenile into his vehicle over the weekend.

Officers were dispatched to a Madison residence Sunday to speak with a 12-year-old juvenile and their parents regarding a suspicious incident that had just occurred.

The juvenile reported that he and three other 12-year-olds were approached by a vehicle on Ridgedale Avenue, at the intersection of Sayre Court, on 10/1/16 at approximately 8:45pm.

The victim advised that the operator of the vehicle rolled down his window and told the juveniles to “get in”. The victims advised that they ignored the driver and kept walking. The suspect was reported to then exit his vehicle and ran after the juveniles for a short distance.

The juveniles advised that the male suspect then returned to his vehicle and fled the area.

The victims described the actor as a Hispanic male with a beard, possibly in the range of 40 years old.

There was a passenger described as a female in her 20’s with blonde hair.

The victims described the actor’s vehicle as a older model, “box-style SUV” that was described as “greenish/yellowish” in color.

Anyone who was witness to this event or has any information, please contact Det. Paul Papamarkos at 973-593-3014.
