Authorities in Boca Raton are currently searching for a suspicious man who reportedly attempted to lure underaged girls to him.
The incident was reported on Wednesday around 4:25 pm near the 1500 block of Southwest 17th Street.
Officials say the man driving a black Jeep Grand Cherokee approached a 14-year-old girl as she walked along the sidewalk and attempted to get her to come to the vehicle. A witness told police that she saw the incident taking place and quickly intervened. The suspect then drove away, however, a minute the suspect approached a 12-year-old girl and signaled for her to come to his vehicle. The 12-year-old ran away and then the driver took off.
Both girls made it home safely and reported the incident.
The suspect is described as a white or Hispanic male in his 30’s with dark pulled back hair and slight facial hair.
