MILL CREEK — Police are asking for help to identify a man who allegedly tried to lure a Jackson High School student into his car early Thursday.
The student was walking to school near the 13800 block of 33rd Drive SE when the man reportedly asked if they wanted a ride, which the student declined. Then the man loudly demanded the student get in the car, police said.
The student quickly reported the incident and told police the man drove a new luxury sedan and had dark skin and a short beard.
Mill Creek police advise children to never accept rides or gifts from strangers, be alert on the way to and from school, travel in groups, always tell family members where they’re going and report anything suspicious immediately.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Tara Marks at 425-745-6175.
