The Fond du Lac Police Department is investigating a report of a suspicious incident that occurred around 4:00p.m. on January 13th  in the area of S. Main Street and 15th St in the City of Fond du Lac.  The incident was reported the following day to a School Resource Officer. 


A female student from Theisen Middle School reported to her mother, that while she was walking home from school that she was on the east sidewalk of S. Main Street at 15th Street, when she was approached by an adult male subject who began walking with the student and talking with her.   The male subject made some comments that the girl was cute and asked her name.  The male then put his arm on her shoulder directing her to walk on 15th Street.  The girl told the male she could not go that way and walked away to go towards her home.
