AMBRIDGE, Pa. —
Police in Ambridge are looking for a man accused of trying to lure a 15-year-old girl while she was running.
Authorities said the girl was running on Merchant Street about 4:30 p.m. Wednesday when the man passed her in his truck several times.
According to police, the man eventually asked the girl for directions to the high school and she told him. The girl said he then asked her to get in his truck and show him.
The girl said she declined and walked away. When the man passed her again, the girl called her mother who then alerted police, authorities said.
“We’re really proud of her. No child should ever get into a stranger’s car,” Ambridge police officer Glen Sovich said.
According to the police report, the man is described as being in his 50s, about 5-feet 6-inches tall, with short gray hair and a goatee.
The man’s truck was an orange 1980s or ‘90s Chevrolet S-10 or Ford Ranger, police said.
Anyone with information on the incident is asked to contact police.
