The Porter County Sheriff’s Police is seeking two male subjects who appeared
to have tried to lure a juvenile girl into their vehicle on Sunday at South
Haven Elementary School.

school—located at 395 Midway Drive—when she observed a purple SUV-style Jeep
westbound on Midway Drive and the Jeep’s driver “looking at her.”
The Jeep then went into the teacher’s parking lot, turned around, and
The girl “stated that she felt uneasy about the situation and began to walk
away from the school,” police said. As the Jeep exited the lot to head east
on Midway Drive, she stated, the “driver slowed down” and said “Hey,” then
“motioned with his hand for her to come toward the vehicle and something
else that she could not make out.”
At that point the girl “ran home to tell her father about the incident,”
Her father, for his part, attempted unsuccessfully to locate the purple Jeep
and then called the PCSP.
The subjects were described as black males. The driver was in his twenties
with black hair braided into corn rows which went down his neck and was
wearing a a black tee-shirt. The passenger was also in his twenties and
wearing a white tee-shirt.
Officers were similarly unable to locate the suspect vehicle.
