The Twin Falls Police Department is asking for the community’s assistance in locating two white males who have been reported as attempting to entice children. On Tuesday August 22, 2017 the Twin Falls Police Department received two separate reports of juveniles being approached by two white adult men over the past week and being offered rides to school. The first event occurred on Thursday August 17, 2017, in the area of Heyburn Avenue East and Teton Street. The second event was reported to have occurred on August 22, 2017, in the area of Sunrise Blvd. and Shoup Avenue East. The adult men were reported to be driving a white van at the time of both events.
Twin Falls Police Detectives and School Resource Officers are currently following up on several leads to these events. The Twin Falls Police Departments asks parents to please take a moment to talk with your student about their personal safety and what to do if they are approached by a stranger. The Twin Falls Police Department also reminds parents and guardians to speak with your children about stranger danger as well as to report any similar behavior to a trusted adult as soon as possible.
