MEAD, Colo. (CBS4)– Weld County Sheriff deputies are warning parents in the Mead area about two men who are trying to entice children.
The latest incident happened Tuesday afternoon. Two boys, ages 6 and 9, said they were approached by two men in a black car and asked if they ‘wanted to take a ride’ and were offered candy.
The boys were approached as they played in the city park in Mead. The boys immediately returned home to their mother and reported the incident to Weld County Sheriff’s deputies.
Both boys described the car with the suspicious persons as a newer 2005 to 2007 black Pontiac Firebird/Trans Am with “flip up” style headlights, spoiler and tinted windows.
The two men associated with the car are described as: driver- Hispanic male, mid to late 30s with a thin mustache, passenger- Hispanic male, mid to late 30s, four-inch mohawk-style haircut.
A similar incident was reported on May 14 in the town of Mead where several elementary age children reported being followed home as they walked from school. No attempted contact was reported with any of the children involved but it did occur in the same vicinity of the city park in Mead.
The vehicle involved in that incident is described in the same manner as the one in the most recent encounter.
Anyone with information about either of these incidents is asked to contact the Weld County Sheriff’s Office at 970-356-4015 ext. 2825.
