Riverside man tried to lure Bolingbrook minor into vehicle: complaint

A Riverside man was charged with trying to lure a minor into his vehicle and lurking in the bushes near the same minor’s residence in Bolingbrook, according to court records.

On March 18, Will County Judge Sarah Jones signed a warrant for the arrest of Luis A. Sanchez, 41, who lives in an apartment in the first block of Lincoln Avenue. Sanchez was charged with two counts of misdemeanor disorderly conduct, court records show.

A Bolingbrook detective investigated Sanchez and determined that on Nov. 7 he went to a minor’s residence in the village and “knowingly attempted” to lure the minor into his vehicle, according to a criminal complaint.

The incident alarmed and disturbed the minor, according to the complaint.

On Dec. 3, Sanchez “knowingly” lurked in the bushes by the residence of the minor, the criminal complaint said. That incident also alarmed and disturbed the minor, according to the criminal complaint.

The warrant for Sanchez’s arrest carries a $20,000 bond, court records show. Sanchez will need to post $2,000 for his release from custody when he is apprehended.

Bolingbrook police did not respond to questions for further information about the incidents that led to the disorderly conduct charge filed against Sanchez.

Sanchez had not been arrested yet as of Friday, Bolingbrook police said. Sanchez is 5-foot-10, 190 pounds and has black hair and brown eyes, according to the warrant.

The disorderly conduct charge is a class C misdemeanor that is punishable by up to 30 days in jail and a fine of up to $1,500.
