OLYMPIA — Police are looking for a teen or young man who allegedly stopped two female high school students, offered them a ride, and made sexual suggestions toward the girls when they declined.

Two Olympia High School students were walking home from school around 3 p.m. near the  roundabout of Boulevard Road SE and Log Cabin Road SE when a car drove up alongside them, Olympia police said.

The male driver asked the girls if they wanted a ride. The students declined, and the suspect drove away. However, he drove up a short time later and performed a “lewd act” and made “sexual suggestions” to the women.

“Shocked and frightened, both women quickly walked away,” Olympia police said. But the suspect slowly followed them for a short distance before speeding off.

The girls called 911 to report the incident, but police were unable to locate the suspect.

The suspect is a white male, between 16 and 18 years old with reddish-brown hair that is combed to the side. His vehicle was described as a grey, four-door passenger car with a partial Washington license plate that begins with the letters “VS.”

If you have any information about this incident, please contact the Olympia Police Department at 360-753-8300 or Thurston County CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
