Suspicious Man Approaches Children On Wednesday, April 14, 2010, the South Lake Minnetonka Police Department (SLMPD) received a report that two young girls were approached by an unknown man who yelled something similar to “Stop! Wait for me!” The girls were able to run from the area and tell an adult.
The incident occurred in the parking lot of an apartment complex in the 800 block of Third Avenue in Excelsior.
The suspect is described as an older white male with short grey hair and a grey beard. His vehicle is described as a van with three windows on the side. It is unclear what color the van was, but it may be either red or light blue in color.
A similar incident occurred nearby in the City of Minnetonka recently, where the suspect description was similar and the vehicle was described as a white, newer model American made pickup truck with an extended cab.
If you have any information regarding either of these incidents, or the suspect and/or vehicle descriptions sound familiar to you, please contact the SLMPD through Hennepin County Dispatch at (763) 525-6210.
