SAN RAMON – An unknown man tried to lure a 13-year-old girl into his car Saturday morning as she was walking along a residential street, according to a written statment police issued.

The incident occured at Broadmoor Drive near the Cross Valley Trail. The teen was walking home from Pine Valley Middle School when the man pulled over in a “newer, light gray sedan,” police wrote in the statement. “The suspect engaged the juvenile in conversation and then told her to get in the car.”

The girl was on the phone with her mother and walked away. A citizen witnessed the incident, called police, and stayed with the girl until officers arrived.

Police described the driver as between 20 and 30 years old, with light brown skin and curly brown hair. “Officers are searching for more witnesses or video surveillance that may have captured the suspect’s vehicle,” the statement said.

As of 10 p.m. police said there were no further developments in the matter.

Police urged parents to review basic safety rules with children when they are walking by themselves, including not talking to strangers even if they know the child’s name and running home or to school to report what happened.
