KENOSHA — The Kenosha Unified School District is reporting a child enticement act that occurred Wednesday night.

According to a Facebook post, at about 10 p.m., a juvenile was standing at a bus stop in the 4500 block of 52nd Street when a silver Jeep approached him.

A man, described as Middle Eastern and about 6 feet, got out and approached the juvenile.

The driver asked if the juvenile needed a ride, and the person declined. The driver continued to approach the juvenile while inquiring if they needed a ride. The juvenile continued to decline the offer.

Finally, the driver stopped approaching the juvenile and yelled, "Get in the car."

The child then screamed, causing the man to get back into his car and flee the scene.

He was wearing a gray-hooded sweatshirt and is about 27 to 32 years old.
