On Monday, Grayslake Police Department Sgt. Matt Gore said there’s been an “increased police presence for the time being” as the investigation into the incident continues. Meanwhile, students are being urged to walk to and from school, and bus stops, to “do so with friends, siblings or parents/guardians in order to enhance safety,” Community Consolidated School District 46 Superintendent Lynn Glickman wrote in a letter to parents.

During the late afternoon on Friday, a person was walking in the 700 block of Cherry Creek Drive when a mini-van stopped next to them. Two male individuals then got out of the van, which was either grey or silver, according to a news release from the Grayslake Police Department.
