Child Luring Reported Near Post Falls

A possible child luring was reported in the area of South Pine Court near Post Falls on Tuesday, according to a press release issued this morning by the Kootenai County Sheriff's Office. It was reported that at around 4 p.m. an unknown male approached a 6-year-old child that was playing in the driveway of a residence. Pine Court is between Ross Point Road and Cedar south of Seltice Way on the east side of Post Falls. The male attempted to lure the child away by asking for help looking for lost kittens and then briefly followed the child in a vehicle, according to the KCSO. The incident was witnessed by the child’s grandmother, who got the child to safety and later notified the KCSO. The suspect is described as an older white male, approximately 50 to 60 years old, with short gray hair and a gray beard or unshaven face. The suspect was driving an older, possibly '80s, compact passenger car. The car was described as having either faded or oxidized “dull” black paint and as having a bad muffler or a modified exhaust. Those with information are urged to contact the KCSO at 446-1300/Coeur d'Alene Press.
