Elyria Police are warning parents of two separate incidents of men attempting to entice young girls into their vehicles.

The first one occurred last Friday in the College Park Apartments, near C building, when a man attempted to get a 7 year old female into his car as she got off the school bus.

The following is a description of that man and his vehicle:
White male, late teens to early 20’s, beard on his chin, dark blonde hair, wearing a white t-shirt and a black and white ball cap. He was driving an older silver to gray colored vehicle with rust on the back end.

Then Monday afternoon Elyria Police were called to the area of Clark & Fairlawn after a young girl was approached by a man asking her if she would help him search the neighborhood for his lost dog. The man first pulled up along side the 12-year-old female, who was walking home from school and told her to get into the truck. She responded, "NO". He then told her that he needed help looking for his lost puppy. The young girl quickly ran home and told her father who then called the Police. Several Police Officers checked the area and did not locate any vehicle or suspect matching the description.

The girl described the man and truck as follows:
White male, brown hair, clean-shaven, very pale skinned, wearing a brown leather jacket and appeared to be in his 30’s. The truck was described as a full size newer white pick up truck with tinted windows and an American Flag across the back window. The truck also has chrome mud guards and chrome rain guards around the tinted windows.

If anyone has any information about this man they are encouraged to contact the Elyria Police Department at 440-326-1213.
