MUSKEGO — A 5-year-old boy tried hitchhiking after running away from his Muskego home.

According to the Muskego Police Department, the incident happened on Monday, March 4.

Police say a “do-gooder” called to report a child who was attempting to hitchhike on Racine Avenue in Muskego, just south of Parker Drive. The 5-year-old boy stated he ran away from his home, located on Kelsey Drive, because his parents were “being mean.”

Thankfully, the good Samaritan safely brought the child back to his grandfather’s home.

At this time, it’s unclear how the boy feels about his “mean” parents.
