Dodge County authorities seeking assistance in possible child enticement case
FREMONT, Neb. -- The Dodge County Sheriff's Office is seeking the public's assistance in locating a potential child enticement suspect.
In a Thursday press release, DCSO said there were two separate incidents reported.
The first alleged incident reportedly occurred Monday evening.
According to DCSO, deputies responded to the Green Acres Trailer Park in Nickerson, where it was reported that an older white male driving a black van had asked a boy to get into the van with the offer of taking the boy home. The boy ran off and alerted a neighbor, according to the press release. The van was not located.
Two days later, at approximately the same time of day, deputies received a report of an older white male in a black van having approached a boy in Uehling. According to the report, the man asked the boy if he would like an item from his van and indicated he had more. The boy ran to safety and contacted law enforcement, the release stated.
According to DCSO, the van had silver rims and possibly a dent on the driver's side of the vehicle. The van is believed to be newer with some body damage. No license plate information was available.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Dodge County Sheriff's Office.
