Police are investigating an attempted luring that happened earlier this week, according to Lacey police Lt. Phil Comstock.

An 11-year-old girl was walking her dog in the area of 31st Avenue Northeast and Fairhill Drive Northeast at about 3:55 p.m. Monday when she said a man asked her to help him find his dog.

She declined, and the man exited a white Ford Ranger and attempted to grab her, according to Comstock. The girl ran home and told her parents about the incident.

The suspect is described as a white man, medium build, dark brown hair, stubble on his face and a tattoo on the right side of his neck. He was wearing blue jeans, a dark blue short-sleeve shirt, and white-and-black Converse athletic shoes. The Ford Ranger he was driving has a dent on the right side.

Anyone with information on the suspect or vehicle can call the Lacey Police Department at 360-459-4333 or Crime Stoppers at 800-222-8477.
