Two teenagers in a van attempted to entice two Middleton second-graders to get into the vehicle on Friday afternoon, Middleton police reported.The teeens were between 15 and 18. What were they thinking?
According to a new release from Middleton police, the children were walking away from Elm Lawn School, 6701 Woodgate Road, about 3 p.m. when a van driven by a woman stopped at the curb across the street from them. A male opened the van's driver's-side sliding door and motioned for the children to get inside. He called out to them, "Hey come on, get in," then repeated it two more times.
The children went back to the school to report the incident, and the van drove away.
