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.
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.
