Neighborhood on alert after man tries to lure girl into vehicle

PHOENIX - A Phoenix neighborhood is on watch because of signs warning families of attempted kidnappings near 21st Avenue and Union Hills Drive.

The yellow signs state that a man with short blond hair tried luring a 14-year-old girl into his dark blue, four-door car three times.

Jessica Charmack was leaving for work Thursday morning when she saw a man fitting the same description parked on the side of the road.

"I thought it was kind of odd so I kind of slowed down and I went up to the car. I looked over at him and he looked at me and immediately followed me out of the neighborhood," Charmack said.

Charmack has not seen the man in her neighborhood since Thursday.

Phoenix police say a report has been filed, but they are not calling this an attempted kidnapping, since this man only spoke to the young girl.

Police are asking if anyone sees him again to write down a license plate number to help them locate this suspicious person.
