Huntley police said that they determined there had been no ‘malicious or criminal intent’ after a person in a box truck offered a ride to a 14-year-old girl Monday morning.

The Huntley Police Department said that between 9 a.m. and 9:20 a.m. Monday a 14-year-old girl was approached by a white box truck. The incident happened at Rainsford Drive and Jamestown Road near the Dunkin Donuts.

Huntley Deputy Police Chief Mike Klunk said that an occupant of the truck asked the girl if she wanted a ride. She declined and continued walking to her home in the Covington Lakes neighborhood, Klunk said.

The girl did not recognize the occupants of the truck, which left the area and did not make any further contact with the juvenile after she declined the ride, Klunk said.

The mother of the girl called police and reported the incident.

The Huntley Police Department issued a Nixle alert asking for the help of area residents in providing more information about the suspect and vehicle.

Police cancelled the alert around noon and said that the wanted vehicle had been located. Police interviewed the occupants and determined there was no malicious or criminal intent, Klunk said.

No further information has been released by police.
