HARVEY, Ill. –  Two sanitation workers from Harvey were able to catch a registered sex offender, after watching him attempt to lure a 16-year-old boy into his car yesterday morning.

The boy was walking to school, when he was approached at 162nd and Carse.

The man, 43-year-old Sean Drysdale, of South Holland, drove his four-door Chevy sedan alongside the boy and tried to lure him in.

The boy was able to run back home, but the sanitation workers followed Drysdale and called police.

They arrived and took him into custody.

Drysdale had just been released from prison where he served 10 years for criminal sexual assault against an eleven-year-old boy in Lynwood.
