Bonney Lake police said they are increasing patrols before and after school after more reports came in of a man trying to lure children into his van.
Parents told officers similar tales after hearing about an incident Thursday where a man told a 14-year-old girl walking to the bus stop in the 11000 block of Angeline Road that he was going to get her.
The girl hid behind a tree until a friend’s mother drove by and stopped to help.
Police said the man is white, in his early 40s or 50s with light-colored eyes and light facial hair. He is heavier set, has a pale face and was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt. The van is deep red with tinted windows.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Bonney Lake Police Department at 253-863-2218.
