Authorities in Cumberland County are investigating an attempted child luring that occurred Sunday afternoon at a community park.  A 12-year-old girl told police that around 2 p.m. she was approached by a strange man while she was playing at the Lower Allen Community Park along the 4000 block of Lisburn Road.
