Local police search for man who targeted underaged girls

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.

Authorities are asking anyone with information about this suspect to contact them at 561-338-1344.
