A young teenage girl in Blaine reported that a suspicious man asked her if she wanted a ride while she was walking Friday, Feb. 8, according to the Blaine Police Department.
The girl told police she was walking downtown on H Street between Harrison Avenue and 4th Street at 5:30 p.m. when a van quickly came to a stop alongside her. The vehicle and driver were unfamiliar to her. The man driving asked her if he could give her a ride home and she ran away to the Blaine Public Library, where she called her parents for a ride. The man didn’t follow her when she ran.
Blaine police would like to interview the driver, described as a thin, balding man with patchy facial hair and dark circles under his eyes, estimated to be 30 to 40 years old. The van was older and light brown with tinted windows.
