Two men reportedly approached a 13-year-old female Griffin Middle School student waiting at a bus stop early Wednesday, the Thurston County Sheriff’s Office says.
The incident happened in the 4600 block of Oyster Bay Road Northwest at 41st Avenue Northwest at about 8:15 a.m.
The two men, driving a newer sedan, approached the girl in their car and stopped about 100 feet from her. The driver, wearing a sweatshirt with the hood pulled over his head, got out and began walking quickly toward her. His passenger, dressed similarly, also got out, but then called off the other man.
“We can’t do this right now, a car is coming,” the girl reported he said.

The girl described the car as white, with a modern tail light design, such as a brake light that wraps around the perimeter of the tail light assembly, according to the sheriff’s office. The vehicle was possibly a Toyota Prius.
Sgt. Carla Carter said Wednesday the person driving the car that scared off the two men reported that their vehicle had out-of-state plates.
The Sheriff’s Office asks that anyone with information about this incident call 360-786-5500.
