Detectives Investigating Attempted Luring In West Seattle

Detectives are investigating a reported luring attempt in West Seattle after a boy’s family called police Friday afternoon.

A 10-year-old boy was walking home from school in the near 59th Ave SW and SW Spokane St when a red SUV pulled up alongside him. The passenger in the SUV asked the boy if he “wanted to get in.”  The boy relied that he did not and continued to walk home.  When the boy told his mother what had happened, she called police.

The boy described the passenger in the SUV as a black male, 18-20 years old, wearing a dark brown jacket.  Detectives are asking anyone with information in this case to call 206-684-5575.
