Boise Police detectives are investigating an attempted child enticement and battery which reportedly occurred in the Boise foothills on the afternoon of Saturday, April 22nd. 

A sketch of the suspect was released Tuesday. Police are now asking for the public’s help to identify him.

According to a Boise Police Department news release, officers were called after a man reportedly spoke to three juveniles and attempted to entice them into a secluded area on a trail behind Camel’s Back Park.

Reports say the man may have also touched the children against their wishes, which constitutes the crime of battery, the release said.

The man then left the area and possibly got into a car in the nearby parking lot. The juveniles left the park and told an adult they trusted about what had occurred, police said.
