“STARK COUNTY SHERIFF’S DEPUTIES INVESTIGATE POSSIBLE CHILD ENTICEMENT”

Canton, OH – Sheriff George T. Maier reports that at approximately 8:20 A.M. this morning deputies responded to the 9000 block of Cleveland Avenue, North for a possible child enticement call.

Upon arrival, deputies were advised that a white male approximately 16 to 20 years of age, driving a small black SUV with tinted windows and racks on the top, did stop at the bus stop and asked an elementary school aged child if she would like some candy.  The child ran away and the suspect then fled the area. 

This office has been in contact with the school administrator and other local law enforcement agencies.  Anyone with information should contact the Stark County Sheriff’s Office at 330-430-3800 or their local law enforcement agency.

The investigation is pending.
