Moxee Police searching for luring suspect

Posted: Updated:

MOXEE--The Moxee Police Department is asking for your help in locating a man who attempted to lure a young girl into his vehicle.

The girl, who police say is in her early teens, told officers she was walking near North Rivard Road in Moxee around 3:15 p.m. Friday when a tan, late-model minivan drove up to her.

A passenger in the car opened a door and motioned for the girl to get in; she ran off screaming and the van drove away.

The girl described the passenger as a Hispanic male with a shaved head, thin mustache, and a goatee.  He is probably between 25 and 30 years of age.

If you have any information, please call Moxee Police at 509-575-8850.
