A 22-year-old employee at a suburban day care center has been charged with first-degree murder and is being held on $5 million bond in connection with the death of 16-month-old Benjamin Kingan.
Wilmette police are asking for the public's help in finding a man who tried to abduct an 11 year old girl in Wilmette Saturday.
According to an alert issued by police over the weekend, the man stopped next to the victim, rolled down the passenger side window and told the girl to "get inside the car." When she refused he exited the car and tried to push her inside. The girl screamed and ran to her house nearby, while the offender sped off in an unknown direction.
The attempted abduction occurred in an alley near Lake Avenue and Sheridan Road around 2pm on July 10th.
The man is described as white, between 6 feet and 6 feet 2 inches tall, weighing between 160 and 170 pounds. He has brown hair, with scattered gray and brown eyes. At the time of the incident he was wearing glasses with black frames, a plain white T-shirt, blue jeans and a watch with a black band on his left wrist.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the Wilmette Police Department at 847-256-1200.
