Coeur d'Alene Police Department Press Release: 

Coeur d'Alene Police Officers are currently in the area of the 7700 block of Joanna Dr. looking for a male suspect that approached a 13 year-old female. The child reported at approximately 2:40pm she walked out to her mailbox that are group mailboxes shared by other neighbors. The mailboxes are not in front of her house but are nearby.

The victim stated a white, older, utility type van pulled up and stopped near her on the street. A male described by her as a light colored Hispanic, approximately 5'10, and wearing a dark colored beanie on his head, started walking toward her. The female said his direction was straight toward her not the mailboxes.

She became frightened and started to walk faster toward her house. She said he started walking faster toward her. The victim said she began to run toward her house and he ran after her. She ran into her back yard and started beating on the back door. Her mother opened the door and let her into the residence. Her mother did not see the male leave, or get a look at the van. The victim said she did not see a front license plate on the van. She said it has dark windows and a curtain behind the front seats.
