Stephanie J. Beavers, 32, faces misdemeanor charges of child enticement and disorderly conduct after a Thursday morning incident near the intersection of Roosevelt and Rose Hill streets.
An 11-year-old boy was walking to school just after 8:30 a.m. when a woman approached him, walked with him and tried to get him to go with her, police said in a news release. The boy, who did not know the woman, refused and quickly reported the incident to an adult he knew, police said. That adult called police.
Officers located Beavers, who matched witness descriptions, a short time later walking in the area of Emerald and Latah streets. She was booked into the Ada County Jail, where she remained Thursday afternoon.
Boise police report that Beavers has no known address.
