Portland Police responded this morning to a report of a man attempting to entice an 8th grade girl into his vehicle. Officers responded to George Middle School, located at 10000 North Burr Avenue, and spoke with the girl who told police that she was walking to school from her residence, near the Pier Park Apartments, when a man approached her in a vehicle.

The girl told police that the suspect approached her and told her to get into his car. The girl refused and the suspect continued to persuade her to get into the car. The girl continued to refuse and went directly to the school to report the incident to school staff.

The vehicle was last seen on North Calhoun Avenue heading south towards North Fessenden Avenue.

The suspect is described as male Hispanic in his 30s, smaller build, clean shaven, glasses, wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt. The suspect was driving a royal or lighter blue larger SUV, unknown make or model, possibly with a lift kit.

Anyone with information about this suspect or anyone that has had a similar contact with this suspect is urged to call the Portland Police.
