Teens will need to be with an adult if they plan to go shopping at one west suburban mall over the weekend.

North Riverside Park Mall is implementing what it calls a "youth escort policy" that will take effect Friday evening.

After 6 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, anyone 17-years-old and younger must be accompanied by an adult.

Anyone who is alone and appears to be under 17 may be asked to show identification.

Mall officials say this is a way of ensuring that everyone has what they call a safe and enjoyable shopping experience.
