WESTMORELAND COUNTY, Pa. —
State police said they are investigating a report of an attempted luring in Westmoreland County.
Investigators said a white man in his mid-30s approached a juvenile at a restroom at the West Point Baseball and Softball Complex on Saturday in Hempfield Township.
According to Channel 11's news exchange partners at TribLIVE, the suspect approached the juvenile in the restroom at noon and asked, "Do you want to go with me?"
Police have not released the victim's age or gender.
The suspect was described as being a thinly built white male, about 5-foot-11, in his mid-30s with short dark hair.
He was wearing black jeans and had a gold hoop earring in his right ear.
Parents told Channel 11’s Brandon Hudson that the park is often very crowded so it would have been easy for the suspect to blend in or go unnoticed.
“It’s scary, very scary,” one parent said. “I have to watch my kids closely and keep an eye on them at all times. I told them they’re not going anywhere without me or each other.”
Investigators said they’re reviewing surveillance footage from the ballpark to see if it can aid their investigation.
Anyone with information on the attempted luring is asked to contact police.
