Boise Police detectives are investigating an attempted child enticement and battery which reportedly occurred in the Boise foothills on the afternoon of Saturday, April 22. A sketch of suspect was just completed and police are now asking for the public’s help to identify a suspect.
What Happened: 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.
