Child says unknown woman picks up 2-year-old sister

A man and woman allegedly picked up a 2-year-old girl they did not know while she was playing outside with siblings Monday evening, Bloomington Police Department Lt. John Kovach said.

The girl’s mother told police her three children were playing outside their apartment on West Allen Street. The oldest child, age 10, said a white man and white woman they did not know approached them.

The woman held out her arms to the 2-year-old.

“Come here,” she said.

The 10-year-old yelled to put the girl down, and the woman did. The man and woman walked away.

BPD was unable to locate anyone else in the area, Kovach said.

The man was described as wearing a black hat, gray shirt and gray sweatpants. The woman was described as having blond curly hair and a pink shirt.
