An 11-year-old girl called 911 Monday to report that she and two friends were being followed by two men in a blue van while they were walking in the area of the Thornbury Community Park located at 54th Avenue and Thornbury Drive Southeast, according to Lacey police.
The driver of the van reportedly called out to the girls several times through his open window in an attempt to get the girls to get inside the vehicle. The girls said the passenger then got out of the van and opened the side cargo doors.
The girls ran to the park and contacted an adult. The witness snapped three pictures of the van with his cell phone.
The driver of the van is described as possibly a Hispanic male in his late teens to early 20s with short black hair. The passenger is also described as possibly Hispanic, in his late teens to early 20s with a silver wallet chain hanging from a belt loop and wearing a black T-shirt and black pants.
Anyone with information on the identity of the suspects or their vehicle is encouraged to call Lacey Police Det. Steve Brooks at 360-438-2656 or to leave a tip anonymously at Thurston County Crime Stoppers at 360-493-2222.
