BOISE - Boise Police are now asking for the public’s help in identifying a suspect in a child enticement that happened Friday, July 13th. Officers say they’ve spent several weeks following leads, with no results.

According to a Boise Police Department news release, a 13-year-old girl reported being approached while walking near Comba Park near N. Five Mile Rd. and W. Ustick Rd. in west Boise. 

“It was about 8:45 at night when she was approached by an unknown male adult in a dirty, white, four-door cross over SUV or minivan style vehicle,” the release said.
