MARINETTE - Marinette police are investigating two suspicious incidents involving children on the same street this week.
Officers say around 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, a man knocked on the door of a home in the 900 block on Carney Blvd. A young boy answered the door, and the man asked if the boy's younger sister was home, asking for the girl by name. The man was described as being between 35 and 45 years old, with short brown hair. He was wearing a blue shirt with a firefighter logo on it and blue jeans.
Then, just after 5:20 p.m. Thursday, a man was reported to be following a boy in the 1500 block of Carney Blvd. When the boy began running, the man ran to a blue pickup truck and drove away to the east on Carney Blvd. In this case, the man was described as being in his late 20s to early 30s, with short brown hair. He was wearing a sleeveless white shirt and blue jeans.
Police do not know if the two incidents are related. Officers did not specify the ages of the children involved in either case.
