Man tries to lure 6-year-old girl into car in Wesley Hills

Posted: Updated:

A 6-year-old girl had a scary start to the school day Friday when she was approached by a strange man while waiting for the bus.

The girl was waiting for a school bus at the corner of Rainbow Court and Skyline Terrace at around 8 a.m. According to police, a man pulled up and offered her candy, but only if she got in the car first. The girl ran home instead and told her parents.

The girl attends a private school and is the only child who waits for the bus at that corner. Neighbors say they are shocked at the incident because the area is usually trouble free. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Ramapo Police Department at 845-357-2400.
