Wright sheriff reports suspicious incident

On Saturday, Sept. 1, at 7:58 p.m. the Wright County Sheriff’s Office received a report from a residence in Albertville in regards to a suspicious incident in the 5000 block of Kalland Ave NE.

Upon arrival the deputies talked with a 15-year-old female who reported that two unknown males asked her to get into their van while she was out walking.

The van was described as an off white or grayish colored, older conversion van with a sliding side door and dark colored windows. The driver was reported to be an older, heavy set, bald white male wearing a black sweatshirt. The passenger was believed to be a skinny, tall white male possibly in his 20′s wearing a grey sweatshirt and blue jeans.

Capt. Dan Anselment said the sheriff’s office does not believe this van was involved in any prior incidents.

“In this particular case it’s basically a suspicious person, suspicious incident type complaint,” he said. “But we do not believe it was involved in anything else in the past.”

The WCSO is investigating this incident and anyone who may have seen anything suspicious in the area around this time is encouraged to call 911 to report it.
