A nine-year-old boy reported a suspicious man and possible attempted abduction near the intersection of County Farm and Geneva roads around 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 11, according to Winfield police.

The car was described as an older, "boxy" black car with several dents, scratched tires and a broken rear passenger window with the hole the size of a baseball bat, police said.

The man was described as a white male in his 30s, wearing an orange hat. He also may have had a star-shaped tattoo, police said.

Police are asking anyone with information to call the Winfield Police Department at 630-933-7160.
