The Broomfield Police Department has recently received reports of two suspicious incidents of strangers attempting to contact female juveniles walking in the area near Legacy High School.
The first incident occurred on Wednesday, Oct. 23, 2013 at approximately 4:45 p.m. in the area of W. 135th Ave. and Lowell Blvd. A 14 year-old female was offered a ride home by a man described as, a white or Hispanic male in his 40’s with graying mid-length hair and gray mustache, wearing a gray cotton shirt and sunglasses. The girl refused the offer twice before the man drove away eastbound on West 136th Avenue. The vehicle is described as a white, four-door Jeep (possibly a Cherokee or Patriot), with dark tinted windows and gray paint that resembles camouflage from the door handles down. No license plate information was obtained.
The second incident occurred on Tuesday, Oct. 29, 2013 near Legacy High School. Two juvenile females were contacted by a Hispanic male in his late teens or early twenties driving an older model, white, rectangular shaped vehicle with a “spoiler” and possibly tinted lights. The male asked the girls to come over to talk with him and then continued to follow the two girls into their neighborhood. A witness reported that the vehicle stopped in the middle of the street and watched as one of the girls entered her home. The man is described as being approximately 6 feet tall, skinny, with black hair. He was wearing blue jeans, a gray zip-up sweatshirt, and a green and gray hat.
