The Tulare County Sheriff's Office is asking for the public’s help identifying a man who reportedly tried to lure a girl into his car in Earlimart.
Deputies went to the area of South Oak Road and Tulare Avenue about 7:30 a.m. Friday after learning that a juvenile female had been approached by a man in a car.
The driver engaged in conversation with the girl in an attempt to get her to enter his car, investigators said. She ran off without further incident.
The vehicle is a green Honda four-door with tinted rear windows and chipped paint.
The suspect is described as a Hispanic man about 19 years old, thin build with light complexion, no facial hair and a “fade” style haircut. He wore a black shirt and a red 49er baseball cap with a black logo and black bill.
