UPDATE: Spokane County Sheriff's Office: Child Luring Incident; Mead School District Notifies Parents

MEAD, Wash – A 6th grade girl reported two men in a Suburban tried to lure her into their SUV while she waited alone for a bus stop in a residential neighborhood around 8:30 a.m.

The girl is a student at Midway Elementary, and says she was approached at Lidgerwood & Bridle Trail Road.

A neighbor there said she was shocked to hear of the attempted luring, and that sometimes 15 elementary school kids wait around the corner from her home for the bus in the morning.

The Spokane County Sheriff's Department told KHQ as of 5:00 p.m. they had no leads as to who the suspects are or where they are from.

Jared Hoadley, the Executive Director of Student Services for the Mead School District told KHQ the girl ran away to a home in the area she knew was safe.  The district sent out an alert to staff and parents before school got out, and Hoadley says a report like this is very unusual in the area.

Tonight, that little girl is being praised for doing the right thing and backing away from the suspects.


OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE FROM THE SPOKANE COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE: On Tuesday December 11, 2012, at about 8:30 a.m., Spokane County Sheriff's Deputies responded to the area of Bridle Trail and Lidgerwood to a possible attempted luring incident.  A 6th grade student was waiting by herself at the bus stop when a grey Suburban with a black stripe on the side pulled up to her. 
 
The victim said the male passenger, who she described as a white male in his twenties with blonde hair, blonde beard and mustache, rolled down his window and asked if she needed a ride into town. 

As the victim backed away from the vehicle, the passenger opened his door but never exited. The victim also described the driver as a white male in his twenties, blonde hair and no facial hair. The victim said the vehicle sped away shortly after stopping.
 
The victim also said there was a decal on the back window she described as being grey with black flames. Deputies were not able to locate the vehicle in the area. The Mead School District has notified parents in the district of the incident.
