Beaverton, Oregon – A man who tried to lure a 14-year-old girl into his van is still on the run. It happened yesterday afternoon in Beaverton, on Southwest Conestoga Drive and Downing Drive, near Southridge high school. Newspartner KGW reports the suspect is described as a Hispanic man in his 30’s or 40’s with a medium build and short dark hair. He was driving an older, slightly beat up white minivan according to the girl. Police say the girl did everything right, refusing the man’s offers, and it kept her safe. About an hour earlier a similar incident happened on Highway 99 in King City. Police are working to determine if the two cases are related. Anyone with information about the suspect’s identity should contact police.
