West Shore Regional Police investigate a report of an attempted child luring in Wormleysburg. It happened at around 2 o’clock Thursday afternoon along North River Street in the borough. The 13 year old victim told officers that just before she approached Pine Street, a man in a gold pickup truck drove up and reportedly said to her, “Hey hon, you OK? I can give you a ride”
The girl said she replied that she was fine and kept walking. The man asked her two more times before she ran into a yard. The pickup circled the block and again attempted to approach the victim. The victim ran to her home.
The suspect is described as a white male in his 50’s, heavyset with “ginger” colored short hair, mustache, and beard stubble. The pickup had an extended cap, no cap on the truck bed. It also had a black bumper sticker on the rear bumper approximately 12 inches in size.
Anyone with information on the case is asked to contact West Shore Regional Police at (717) 238-9676.
