Elkhart deputies increasing patrols after stranger danger incident

Elkhart County Sheriff's Deputies say they are increasing patrols near school zones, especially near the corner of County Road 45 and County Road 13.

According to Captain James Bradberry, they were alerted by a child Tuesday, that an Indian man who appeared to be in his 20's, offered them a ride while walking to the bus stop.

The student says the man never got out of the older model dark blue Dodge Durango, and did not try to pull the student into the SUV.

The driver of that vehicle left after being told "no" by the student.

That man is said to have had a thin mustache, and was wearing a turban on his head at the time.

If you observe suspicious people or vehicles, you are urged to call Elkhart County Sheriff's Department at 574-533-4151.
