Lakewood police are searching for a man who tried to lure a 16-year-old girl into his car this morning near her bus stop.

The girl refused. She told Lakewood police she’d never seen the man, Lakewood police Lt. Heidi Hoffman said.

The teen told police a man in a late model, silver hatchback contacted her about 6:15 a.m. near 146th Street Southwest and Woodbrook Road Southwest.

The man asked the girl if she wanted a ride and she declined. The man drove away but then did a U-turn and came back, Hoffman said.

The man asked the girl her name, age and other questions. He then ordered the girl to get into the car. She said no. He made the demand she get in the car a second time.

“At this time, something may have spooked him because he drove off,” Hoffman said.

The girl described the man as white, 20 to 30. He had short hair, was clean shaven and wore all black clothing.
