Suspicious man may have tried to lure child out of Greenwood yard

by | Feb 5, 2012

A Greenwood parent contacted us about a possible child-luring incident this afternoon.

My 6 year old daughter was playing in the backyard near 95th and Dayton at 4:15 p.m. today and a man walking down the alley tried to call her out of the yard. He said, “Hey kid, come here,” and put a foot on our chain link fence. She ran in the house and is fine.
My daughter described him as white, around 60 years old, with a black coat, a grey/black/white plaid backpack, and a faded black sunhat. He has a long white beard and she said he looked like his clothes and bag were very worn and he looked homeless or transient.
I called 911 and officers are patrolling.

Police told the girl’s parents to contact their local blog to get the word out.
