Student refuses to get into stranger's car

A man in a dirty green car apparently tried to lure a Duniway Middle School student into his car, but the girl refused and reported the attempt to authorities this afternoon.

McMinnville police investigating the case as a "suspicious circumstance," according to Chief Matt Scales.

Friday afternoon, police were searching for a green four-door sedan with tinted windows that was reportedly involved in the incident. It was driven by a white male, the girl reported.

According to reports on Friday, the 12-year-old was waiting to be picked up after school when the man pulled up. He told her he'd been sent by her mother to pick her up. The girl refused to get into the car.

Anyone with information about the incident or the whereabouts of the dirty green car is asked to call McMinnville police, at 503-474-7307.
