Barrington police are seeking the public's help in locating a man who on two recent occasions suspiciously asked to take photographs of young children walking in public.

The first incident occurred May 31 in the area of South Grove Avenue and Russell Street. The second took place June 4 on Prairie Avenue.


Barrington Acting Police Chief David Dorn said both groups of children were accompanied by an adult, but the request for photographs was made directly to the children. In both cases, the requests were denied and the man left the area.

"We're obviously investigating it, but we're looking for the public's help because we don't want another incident," Dorn said.

The man was described as being in his late 40 or early 50s, possibly white or Hispanic, and driving an older model maroon sedan. Witnesses believe the first three digits of the car's license plates were 370, Dorn said.

Anyone who believes they've seen this car should call 911 immediately, he said.
