On Monday at about 6:40 p.m., a 12-year-old female was riding her bike in the area of Foster and Hunter Lake drives when a newer model, red two-door pickup pulled to the curb and the passenger asked if she wanted a ride. The girl declined but the suspect exited the vehicle, approached her and again asked her to get in the vehicle. The victim became scared and rode her bike out of the area to her home and notified authorities.
The suspect is described as a white man in his late 20s or early 30s with red hair and a beard, wearing black square-framed glasses, a brown flannel shirt or jacket and blue jeans. No description was provided for the driver.
