Driver Tried to Lure Girl into His Car in Perry Township

(INDIANAPOLIS) – A man tried to lure a girl into his car at a Perry Township school bus stop, say police.

Perry Township Schools representatives say the man tried to convince her the bus was running late, so he should take her to school. The girl’s brother was nearby and told her not to go. She did not go and is safe.

They say he approached her on Shelby Street just south of Thompson Road Tuesday morning.

Now the school district and Indianapolis Metro police are trying to figure out the driver’s identity. They think he is a white man in his late 20s driving a small, red four-door car. Police also believe he had a baby buckled into a car seat in the back.

Perry Township School leaders say their officers will keep doing regular patrols. They also encourage parents to talk to their children about “stranger danger.”
