VALPARAISO — Police are investigating a second incident involving a Hispanic man driving a white van and approaching a teenage girl in the Beauty Creek subdivision.

At 3:50 p.m. Thursday, police were called to Kickbush Drive and Knights Bridge Drive regarding a man in a van asking a 15-year-old girl, who was walking home, if she wanted a ride. The van was described as white with the letter “P” on the side of the van in green or blue.

Police believe the same man tried to initiate a conversation at 7:15 a.m. Wednesday with a 13-year-old girl.

Police have increased patrols in Beauty Creek, and they’re asking anyone who observes such a van or similar suspicious activity in the area to call 911.

Anybody with information on the two incidents is asked to call police at 462-2135 or text information to TIP411 (847-411) and use the key word “Valpo” prior to submitting the information.
