Extra police patrols have been assigned to a south Richland area after two teens reported that a man tried to lure them into his compact car about 10:15 p.m. Saturday.
The teens were riding skateboards in the area of Westcliffe Boulevard and Brantingham Road, according to a Richland police report.
The boys told police that a white man in his mid-40s and wearing glasses pulled out of a residential street and drove up behind them in a tan or brown four-door car.
He began to talk to them and tried several times to persuade the boys to get into the car. The teens described him as very pushy.
Never miss a local story.
The teen jumped onto their skateboards and called 911 when they were away from the man. Officers could not find the car or the suspect.
