Police are searching for a man they say tried to lure an 11-year-old into his car and then followed her on foot for a short while before she ran away.
Cops say the girl was walking at the corner of Manhattan Avenue and Moore Street in Williamsburg at 5:50 pm on March 13 when the man pulled alongside her his silver sports utility vehicle and began waving at her to get into the vehicle. The girl ignored him and kept walking, so he man got out and started following her, still waving for her to come to him. The girl ran away and the man got back into his vehicle.
The girl managed to give a police sketch artist enough details for the artist to draw an approximation of the man’s face. Cops described him as a white male about 5-foot-8 and about 35 years old. He was wearing dark clothing.
Law enforcement officials ask people with information about the man’s identity to call (800) 577–8477, submit tips at www.nypdc
