A unidentified middle aged white male with brown hair driving a newer bright red mid-size pickup truck with matching topper (Possible Toyota Tacoma) stopped near the juvenile. The male told the juvenile that he was diabetic and needed directions to the nearest hospital. The male asked the juvenile to get in the vehicle and help him. The juvenile was able to flee and report the incident to the Grant County Sheriff's Office. A similar incident was reported on July 15, 2020 near the Village of Dickeyville however the witness was unable to provide any identifying characteristics of the individual or the vehicle. The Grant County Sheriff's Office would like to make residents aware of these two separate incidents and contact law enforcement if they have any information that would help with identifying this individual.
