Police are investigating reports that a man tried to get a 5th grade girl to get into his car this morning near Pierce Road and Valleyway Avenue in Spokane Valley.

The girl, a student at Opportunity Elementary School, was approached by a man in a car who asked if she wanted a ride to school as she waited for the bus, police say.

The girl walked to a bus stop where other students were waiting and told the bus driver about the incident.

The man is described as white, in his late 20s to early 30s with brown hair and a black stocking cap with a white stripe. The vehicle was an older red sedan with tinted windows.

The girl told police the man asked her “at least five times” if he could give her a ride to school before she walked away.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Check at (509) 446-2233.
