Safety Alert: Attempted Child-Luring Incident

A 14-year-old Issaquah girl said a man attempted to lure her into his vehicle April 19, 2017.

The girl was checking her mail in the 22000 block of Southeast 56th Street at about 4:40 p.m. when a vehicle pulled up beside her, and the driver told her to get in the car.

The driver was wearing a black ski mask with eye openings only. The car is described as an older, small, dark-colored, four-door vehicle of unknown make and model.

The girl fled from the suspect's vehicle and ran home, where her mother contacted police.

Issaquah police are looking for any information that may help in identifying the suspect. Detectives are currently attempting to locate witnesses, as well as security video of the incident.

If you have more information, contact the Issaquah Police Department at 425-837-3200.

Police are also encouraging parents to review safety tips with their children:

  • Never talk to a stranger.
  • Never let a stranger get too close, whether the stranger is in a car or walking.
  • Never tell a stranger any personal information, such as your name, age or address.
  • Travel in groups, if possible.
  • Stick to safe, well-lit paths when walking.
  • Do not obstruct your hearing with iPods or portable music players when walking or waiting outside.
  • If a stranger attempts to grab you, yell as loudly as you can and run away.
  • Always alert an adult immediately if you are approached by a suspicious person.
