Port Townsend police investigate two attempted child lurings
The latest happened Thursday morning just blocks from Blue Heron Middle School on San Juan Avenue, police said. An 11-year-old girl riding her bike says a man in a white van blocked her path. The suspect told the girl her mother told him to give her a ride to school.
Police say the child did the right thing by asking the man a series of questions, such as her mother’s name. When he didn’t know the correct answer, she rode away.
On Oct. 2, an 11-year-old boy said he was approached by a man in a white van who offered him candy.
