Salem student, 14, reports man tried to lure her into car
SALEM — Police are investigating a report that a man tried to lure a 14-year-old girl from a bus stop on Wednesday morning.
Police were called about 7:15 a.m. Wednesday morning by the girl's father.
The man, described as being in his 30s, pulled up to the bus stop on Lou Avenue near School Street, and offered the girl a ride to school, police said.
“She was offered a ride to school and he made some mention of being friends with her parents,” Deputy police Chief Shawn Patten said.
The girl refused the ride and instead called her father, police said.
The man was described as being in his 30s, with orange hair and mousy facial features, according to police.
He was wearing a green button-down shirt.
Police say the man was driving a white, newer model, four-door sedan. The girl told police she could not identify a make or model number. Police believe the car had a New Hampshire license plate.
Patten said detectives are trying to track down the vehicle and other viable leads.
The incident remains under investigation. Anyone with information is asked to call Salem police at 603-893-1911 or Crimeline of Southern New Hampshire at 603-890-6600.
