The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s are investigating an attempted child abduction in the Lake Charleston Development

On January 31, 2017, at approximately 6:00 pm, two children were approached by an unknown black male as they were walking
home near Winder Court in the Lake Charleston Community. Both children were asked by the black male if they wanted candy,
they said no and ran home.

The “person of interest” was described as: in his 40’s, short “corn kettle” hair and “5 o’clock shadow” facial hair. He was wearing a
short sleeve black t-shirt with a skull on the front. The vehicle was described as: dirty white van with a metal grate that separates the
front seat from the back.

One of the children and an independent witness were both sure this was the same type of van that was described in the
February 13, 2017 attempted abduction incident that occurred in Lake Charleston. These two incidents are believed to be involving
the same person.

If anyone has information on this incident they are urged to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-458-TIPS (8477) or report online at:…rime/submit-a-tip/ to stay anonymous and be eligible for up to $1,000 REWARD!
