Sheriff’s Office seeks man in alleged Valley luring incidents

From staff reports
The Spokane County Sheriff’s Office is looking for a man they say has tried to lure children into his car over the past several weeks in the Mission and Broadway avenues corridor. Deputies have received six reports of the man offering rides between 7:15 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. in his red sport utility vehicle, according to a news release. The reports have been made in the 13300 blocks of Mission and Broadway, as well as at the intersection of Mission and Adams Road. The man is described as being in his 40s, balding with gray hair and speaking with a heavy accent. He stands about 6 feet tall and weighs between 150 pounds and 200 pounds, according to the Sheriff’s Office. Deputies are stepping up patrols in the area in cooperation with the Central Valley School District, the news release said. Those with information about the incidents are asked to call Crime Check at (509) 456-2233.
