Waukesha police are asking the community to help them gain insight into what might have been an attempted child enticement incident earlier this week at Waukesha South High School, 401 E. Roberta Ave.
According to a department news release, an approximately 50-year-old man offered to give a 16-year-old boy a ride home around 7:15 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 21, outside the school. The boy, who is not a Waukesha School District student, was waiting to be picked up after swim club practice there, the release said.
The man reportedly told the boy he knew the boy's mother and said she asked him to pick the boy up, but the boy did not recognize him and declined the ride. The man then drove away, the release said.
Police said the boy's mother confirmed she did not ask anyone to give her son a ride home.
According to police, the man was driving a white Toyota Camry. No additional information about his appearance was included in the release.
"We are working with the school district, making students’ safety a top priority," said Sgt. Jerry Habanek.
Anyone with information is encouraged to contact Specialist Dan Klein at 262-970-3735.
