PARENTS BEWARE: Two Attempted Luring Incidents Reported in Lakewood

sus 2TLS has received multiple reports of two attempted luring incidents that have occurred in Lakewood yesterday.

Residents of the Lakewood Commons and Chesterfield Commons neighborhood report to TLS that around 12 PM yesterday, a driver, identified as a black female driving a black vehicle, pulled up alongside an approximately 8-year-old boy, and told him to come into her vehicle. The boy, riding a bike, immediately fled to his home.

At approximately 6 PM, a similar incident occurred, area residents tell TLS.

The residents say a white SUV driven by a black female offered candy to five and seven year-old boys, motioning them to come to her vehicle. The children also ran home.

sus 1“It would be a good idea to alert the public to be vigilant and not allow children outside alone,” one of the mothers told TLS.

The incidents – unknown if connected – were both reported to police.

  1. The first picture is from Chesterfield. The car driving around was the one in bottom right that you see its back (looks like a Ford symbol) not the other white car that you see from the side view.

  2. everyone must must must teach and re-teach their children of all ages that one can never ever go to a stranger! imagine c’v if a child would have gone for the candy!! bravo to the mothers of those young children that fled…you taught them well

  3. Where you mothers why are children outside alone?!?!?!? Be responsible parents…I will never understand the lack of responsibility.. 8 yr olds are too young to be left alone even in a frume area!!!! Wake up ppl watch ur kids

  4. Why did it take a whole day to notify everyone else ? These incidents must be reported immediately to the POLICE , then email the Scoop, a warning that comes too late R”L is worthless.

  5. @Dave – Those are the trees on the other side of River Ave at the entrance to the development. Picture was taken as the car was leaving.

  6. We need to watch out for all in the community! ! If you see something say something. .Be careful out there! Yes! It could happen in your neighborhood, too!!
