SWATARA TWP., Dauphin County, Pa. — A 15-year-old female student says a man tried to get her into his car when she got off her bus on Monday. It happened at 49th and Lancaster Streets. The girl told police a car pulled up to her when she got off the bus. Three males were in the car, which smelled of marijuana, according to the girl.
The driver got out of the car and asked the girl if she needed a ride. She declined and began to call her father on her cellular phone. The three males then left the area in the car. The student walked home without any further incident. The girl says the same car was at her bus stop the next day and she didn’t get off the bus because she was scared.

The car is described as a white four-door sedan, with dents in the bumpers, possibly a Nissan. There is no further description of the suspects, other than the driver perhaps being Hispanic.

Anyone with information relative to this investigation is urged to contact the Swatara Township Police at 717-564-2550. Tipsters may also submit a tip via Tipsters may remain anonymous.
