MANATEE -- The Manatee County Sheriff's Office is investigating a report that a man tried to lure a girl into his pickup truck Tuesday evening as she played near her home, according to a news release.
About 8:41 p.m., the girl was playing in the 700 block of 64th Avenue East, Bradenton, when the truck approached her and the driver partially rolled down his tinted window. The man started a conversation with the child, according to the report.
"The unknown male tried to verbally direct the child into his vehicle," the report states.
A physical description of the man was not obtained because of the window tint and because he didn't get out of the vehicle, according to the sheriff's office.
The truck was described as a late model black Dodge with an extended cab and large rims and tires. It had dark tinted windows with chrome sidesteps mounted under the cab, according to the sheriff's office.
