Man who tried to lure girl sought


Police are looking for a man who attempted to lure a girl waiting for a school bus into his car.

West Goshen Township police said officers responded to the report at 6:46 a.m. this morning in the area of Rosedale and Ceredo Avenues. The girl said as she was waiting for the bus, a man approached in a vehicle, waving to get her attention. He then pulled the vehicle to the side of the road and continued to make gestures to her, police said.

The girl said the man then drove off, but turned around and came back to the area where she was standing; he stopped the vehicle in the roadway with his window down and motioned for her to get into his passenger's seat. When she refused, the man exposed himself to her, and the girl ran to her residence, police said.

The girl described the man as a clean-shaven, white male with short, brown hair in his late 20s or early 30s, wearing a black T-shirt. She described the "sparkly" blue vehicle as small to average size with no other identifying characteristics. The victim said it resembled a photo she was shown of a vehicle police believe was involved in a separate incident in the borough of West Chester on Sept. 22.

The victim and her parents met with the Chester County detectives so that a composite sketch could be drawn of the suspect. Anyone who recognizes the man or the vehicle is asked to call police at 610-696-7400.
