A 12-year-old girl said a man tried to lure her into his van Thursday afternoon while she was walking along Coburg Road near Monroe Middle School, Eugene Police said.
The girl told a school resource officer that a man was standing outside his van with the sliding side door open near the shopping center at Coburg and Willakenzie Roads, asking several times to give her a ride. She denied the man's repeated requests, left the area, and walked home safely.
The student described the man as possibly white, in his mid-to-late 30s, about 6-feet tall with a thin build. He had short hair, balding on top with facial stubble.
