Police: Man tried to lure children behind Camel's Back, may have touched them

BOISE - Boise police are trying to identify the suspect who tried to lure children behind Camel's Back Park.

The attempted enticement and battery happened the afternoon of April 22.

Police said they received a report that a man talked to three children and tried to entice them into a secluded area on a trail behind the park.

He may have also touched the children against their wishes.

The man then left the area, possibly getting into a car in the parking lot of the park.

The children left the park and told a trusted adult about what happened. On Wednesday, police released a composite sketch of the suspect.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 208-343-COPS(2677), online at 343COPS.com or on the free P3 app.

You can remain anonymous and you can earn a reward of up to $1000.00 if your tip leads to a felony arrest.

Police ask parents to review these "No-Go-Tell" safety tips with their children:

- Yell "No!" when someone asks a child to approach an unknown vehicle, house or tries to grab the child.

- "Go", run away

- "Tell" a trusted adult who can call police.

Parents are also asked to relay to police immediately any good description of the suspect or vehicle and to keep in mind that their children should know that getting to a safe place is the highest priority.
