GRANTS PASS, Ore. — Police officers are scouring Grants Pass for a man they say tried to lure a 12-year-old girl into his van.
Police say he pulled up to her bus stop on Williams Highway in an older teal-blue van on Wednesday. The girl says he told her the bus already went by and offered her a ride to school.
Grants Pass Police say she refused, but the man persisted until the bus arrived, then he took off. Several other students waiting at the stop on East Park Street told police they saw the same man hiding behind a van, taking pictures of them.
The man is described to be between 30 and 40 years old, with a thin build and dark curly hair. Anyone who encountered similar situations is asked to call police.
