warren police car

The mother of a 5-year-old Warren girl told police someone tried to coax her daughter into getting into his truck on Saturday afternoon.

The woman told police that her daughter was playing at about 4:40 p.m. in the front yard of their home in the 800 block of Belmont Street N.E. when a man in a red and silver or red and beige S-10-style pickup truck pulled up next to the girl.

Reports say the man, described as white and in his 50s or 60s with white hair, told the girl to “come here.” When the girl refused, he demanded she come to his truck, reports say.

The girl then went to her mother, who said she saw the truck pull away from the area.

Anyone with information is asked to call Warren police at 330-394-2521.
