Delaware State Police Youth Aid detectives are seeking a male suspect who attempted to lure two 13-year-old girls in the Eagle Meadows development in Dover Tuesday morning.
Delaware State Police Youth Aid detectives are investigating the report of a possible luring incident which occurred Tuesday morning in Dover.
The incident occurred at approximately 7 a.m., as a 13-year-old female was walking to a bus stop in the Eagle Meadows development in Dover. The female told police that as she was walking, she was approached by a black male subject operating a gray Honda Civic.
The 13-year-old advised that the subject asked her if she wanted a ride and when she declined, asked her if she wanted to be his girlfriend. The victim again declined at which time the subject drove away. She went to her bus stop and then reported the incident upon her arrival at the Postlethwait Middle School in Camden.
Through further investigation it was learned the same subject had approached a second female student earlier in the same development as she walked to her bus stop. After asking the victim the same questions, he again drove off.
The suspect is described as a black male, 30 to 45 years of age. He was last seen wearing a brown jacket.
The Delaware State Police ask parents to remind their children to never talk to strangers, and if at all possible, walk their children to the their bus stop or school or have them walk in groups.
