RACINE — Racine police are investigating a possible child enticement involving a 13-year-old girl.

Officers responded to Turning Point Academy around 9:15 a.m. on Friday, March 4th. They spoke with a 13-year-old student who indicated she was approached by a Hispanic man driving a red vehicle in the area of Douglas and Prospect.
