Police are searching for two teenagers that duct-taped an 8-year-old boy to a pole and stole his candy near the Stingray Bay water park in Huntley.
The Huntley Police Department responded around 1 p.m. Tuesday to meet with the mother of the boy. She told police that her two sons, ages 6 and 8, were at the park area adjacent to the Stingray Bay water park, 122015 Mill Street, using the outdoor fitness equipment.
The two boys were approached by two teenagers that were riding bicycles. One of the teenagers grabbed the 8-year-old boy’s wrist, took his candy and duct-taped his wrist to a pole on the fitness equipment.
Police said that the teenagers left and the 6-year-old boy sought help from a park employee, who cut the duct tape, releasing the boy and then contacted their mother.
The teenagers were described as wearing black shorts with black and green t-shirts that had Fortnite logos on them. They were last seen riding their bicycles towards Mill Street.
The incident remains under investigation by the Huntley Police Department and Huntley Park District. Anyone with information is asked to call police at 847-515-5311 or their anonymous tip line at 847-515-5333.
