SPD Arrests Man For Luring; Warns There May Be More Victims

***Press Release From Spokane Police Department***

SPOKANE, Wash. - Spokane Police Officers have arrested 32 year old Jose Galvan for allegedly stopping females and demanding they get into his car.  Officers arrested Galvan for Luring after a witness positively identified him.  Detectives believe that there may be more victims and witnesses and anyone with information is urged to call Crime Check at 509-456-2233.

Today (Thursday) at approx. 7:30am, Spokane Police received the first of several calls about a male driving a black compact sedan approaching females near 1100 W. Dalton and demanding they get in his car. The complainant provided a partial license plate number and a description of the suspect.  Officers stopped a vehicle that closely matched the description driven by 32 year old Jose Galvan but at the time officers were unable to get in contact with the original complainant to positively identify Galvan. The description she originally provided wasn't close enough to further detain Galvan without speaking directly to the victim, so Galvan was released.

Less than an hour later, a 14 year old victim called in and advised of a similar male driving a similar car near 3400 N. Crestline who had asked her several times to get into his vehicle.  She was able to provide a full plate number and again Galvan was stopped by police.  This time police were able to contact the victim and positively identified Galvan as the suspect.  He was booked into Spokane County Jail for Luring.

Detectives believe there may be more victims and/or witnesses that could provide pertinent information. If you think you may have been a victim or may have witnessed a similar incident, please call Crime Check at 509-456-2233. As always, we benefit immensely from the public being our eyes and ears for incidents like this.
