Man tries to lure teen into car while she walked on sidewalk

Pembroke Pines police looking for man


PEMBROKE PINES, Fla. – Pembroke Pines police are looking for a man who they say tried to lure a 14-year-old girl into his car while she was walking with some friends.

According to police, the other girls were further ahead of her on the sidewalk near the Brittany Bay subdivision of the Silver Lakes community.

That's when the man driving an older-model tan pickup truck pulled up beside her and asked her repeatedly if she would like to get to know him.

After she said no several times, he told her, "That's three no's in one sentence. We'll have to do something about that."

Police say the teen then pretended to talk on her cell phone while running to catch up with her friends.

The man is described as being about 60 years old with a gray beard.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Pembroke Pines Police Department.
