COEUR D' ALENE, Idaho - A Coeur d'Alene mom is encouraging other parents to be vigilant about keeping their children safe after she said a man tried to lure her 8-year-old daughter and 6-year-old friend  this weekend.

Coeur d'Alene Police said the two girls were riding bikes around their neighborhood when a man suddenly stopped his car on the corner of S. 12th St. and Young Ave. Police said the man got out of the car and yelled at the girls "Hey you two!" and "Let's go!" and grabbed at the 6-year-old's arm.

Mom said the girls instantly started running. The 8-year-old ran down an alley while the 6-year-old ran down the street. The suspect chased after the younger girl for a short distance but both girls made it home safely.

So far police have not arrested a suspect in this case. Police describe the suspect as an older white male with a thin build and is tall. He had short brown hair, brown eyes, a mustache and possibly an ear piercing. He was wearing a grey shirt and blue jeans.

Police said he was last seen traveling southbound on 11th St. from Young Ave. in a mini van described as blue/grey in color with brown sides.

KHQ found this case is part of a larger child enticing problem. Coeur d'Alene Police Sergeant Christie Wood said there have been 18 reports of attempted child luring in the last six months in Kootenai County, with at least one report in every city within the county.

Wood said there were some common descriptions throughout the reports which leads them to believe there might be a connection.
