Absecon Police are alerting area residents of an attempted child luring that happened Monday night.

According to police, around 10:00 Monday night, a 14-year-old female was walking along Huron Avenue when a Hispanic male driving a mid-sized blue four-door vehicle pulled up next to her and told her to get in the vehicle. She refused and then he told her a second time to get in and she refused again. She then took off running to a friend’s house and contacted the police.

The juvenile described the suspect as a Hispanic male in his mid 30’s. He had dark hair and a large nose. She also described the vehicle as a newer model vehicle, possibly with New Jersey tags. The incident occurred on Pitney Road just before Huron and the suspect fled north on Pitney Road towards Galloway Township.

Anyone who may have been in the area around this time and saw anything is asked to contact the Absecon Police Department at 641-0667.
