Girl approached by stranger in Marseilles Saturday

Do small towns draw predators?  Marseilles Police stated Saturday  that it appears another attempted abduction was tried there.  The Police stated on Facebook  a girl under age 17 was approached by a white male on Clark Street Saturday asking if she wanted a free newspaper. The young girl said “no” and started walking away. The report says the man, who was on foot, followed her a short distance before returning to his 4-door, older model white Jeep Cherokee.

The guy was described as 5 foot 8,  black glasses with a  chubby build.  Another resident said they, too, had seen a similar vehicle Friday evening in the Bluff and Williams street area.  A white male was driving that vehicle. If you have information regarding this man, you’re asked to call Marseilles Police at 795-2131.
