Yesterday evening, around 6:00 p.m., two young girls were walking along Franklin Park when they were approached by an unknown male in a vehicle. The contact was on Whitehouse Street just north of Queen Avenue.

The male asked the two girls for directions to a business that is not anywhere near the area of the contact. The driver asked the girls to come closer to his car, told them they were pretty and asked if they were models. He never asked them if they wanted to get in the vehicle.

The male is described as a clean cut, white male in his 20’s with brown curly hair and a goatee. His vehicle is described as possibly being a newer, white Ford Echo or similar body style with a rounded top. The car had very dark tinted windows. It is believed the car has license plates from a state other than Washington.

SPD would like to locate the driver of the vehicle. If you have any information regarding this incident please call crime check at (509) 456-2233 and reference incident number 2018-20070130.
