Police called after teen reports driver tried to coax her into car
SALEM — A 14-year-old girl told police a man tried to lure her into his car while she was waiting for the school bus Wednesday morning at Lou Avenue, off School Street.
The student was at the stop at 7:15 a.m. when a white, newer-model, four-door sedan pulled up and the driver tried to coax her into it by asking if she wanted a ride to school, according to a news release. The man told her he knew her parents, police said.
She declined the ride and immediately called her father, who called police.
She described the man as being white, in his 30s with orange hair, mousy facial features and wearing a green buttondown shirt.
She thought the car had a New Hampshire license plate, but she was unable to get the number as it drove away.
The incident remains under investigation.
Anyone with information is asked to call police at 893-1911 or Southern N.H. Crimeline at 890-6600.
