The Marana Police Department is investigating two recent reports of juveniles being approached by suspicious vehicles. Detectives are following up on both of these cases. The reports do not appear to be related to each other at this time. The first incident was reported on December 18th by the parents of a 10 year old boy. They reported the incident occurred on December 16, 2014 at approximately 4pm, near the intersection of Silverbell Road and Twin Peaks Road. The 10 year old boy was jogging down the side of the street when a tan/brown older model Mustang pulled up next to him. The driver asked the boy if he wanted a ride. The boy declined and the vehicle drove away. The vehicle then returned several minutes later and again asked the boy if he wanted a ride. The boy again declined. After the boy declined again, the driver yelled for the boy to get into the car. The boy became scared and ran away from the vehicle and he hid in a nearby wash. The driver of the car exited his vehicle and looked around for the boy for several minutes before returning to his car and leaving. The boy was not injured during this incident.
