This sounds so much like the Homie the Clown sightings that were all over the south and west side of Chicago at some time in the 1990's. The clown had to be real since it was one of those friend of a friend of a friend stories that happened to someone--sounds like this may be an urbam myth too.

Some kids in my area have seen him around their school near North Ave and KImball in a brown van. Scary that kids can't even go to school without being afraid of what can happen to them.. I hope this individual gets caught and put away for a long time. We need to start cleaning our streets and protecting our children from predetor like this.

I heard about this in school we live in oak park (1st suburb west) right by north avenue and since hes been seen there, people around here are really freaked out. He is said to tap you on the soulder and take you to his white van. Does anyone know if hes been seen in Oak Park yet?
