Teenager reports man tried to lure her into his car

LORAIN — A teenager on Monday evening was allegedly approached by a man who tried to lure her into his car.

The 14-year-old Lorain girl told police that she was walking alone after playing with her friends at Longfellow Park around 7:30 p.m.

Near the corner of Louisiana Avenue and F Street a man driving a tan four-door sedan pulled up next to the teenager, she told police. She described the man as Hispanic with a beard.

According to the police report, the man rolled down his window and said, “Could you please get into the car?”

The 14-year old told police that she started running as soon as the man spoke to her, calling police as she fled the scene.

Police weren’t able to find any car matching the teenager’s description.
