On Wednesday, May 4, 2011, at approximately 6pm, two 7th grade girls reported being followed by an unknown person in the area of Meridian School (2195 Brandywyn Ln, Buffalo Grove). The girls were at Meridian School when they spotted a small 4-door black vehicle, with mud flaps on the rear tires in the parking lot. They left the school area onto w/b Brandywyn and then turned s/b Meridian Way. The vehicle exited the parking lot and followed them driving slowly. The driver was described as a male of either Middle Eastern (Indian) or Hispanic between the ages of 30 and 40 years old. He had dark eyes and short dark hair. The driver was wearing a white t-shirt with red horizontal stripes on the front. The driver never spoke to the girls but made hand gestures - giving them a "thumbs up" and pointing to the interior of the vehicle. He followed them to Jordyn Ter and then turned around and left the area. The area was searched with negative results. No license plate was obtained. Police will step up patrols in this area. Report any suspicious activity to the police. Buffalo Grove Police: (847) 459-2560.
