Meadowlark Dr. near Milwaukee St.


UPDATE: In cooperation with our partners at Kennedy Elementary School and the community, we were able to determine this individual was actually the father of the children. At this point we have no further concerns about this incident. The Madison Police Department expresses it's gratitude to all those involved who were concerned and assisted us in this investigation. A concerned citizen contacted the MPD Monday afternoon after seeing a driver possibly trying to make contact with grade school age girls as they were walking home from Kennedy Elementary School along Meadowlark Dr. around 2:00 p.m. The caller described a white male, in his early 20's, wearing a black hooded jacket, with the hood up, driving a dark, 4-door, SUV. The license plate started with 957. The MPD is continuing to investigate and the principal at Kennedy Elementary is sending a letter home to parents.
