Davis boy reports attempt to lure him into van

Davis police are investigating a report that two people tried to lure and 11-year-old boy into a van.

Shortly after 1 p.m. Thursday, officers were dispatched to Halcon Place in northeast Davis regarding a report of suspicious circumstances. An 11-year-old boy told a neighbor that two people he did not know pulled up in a green Ford van and asked him to get inside, according to a Police Department news release. The boy refused and rode off on his bicycle.

The van followed the boy for a short distance before leaving the area.

Police said the vehicle was described as a full-size van, and the occupants were described as a man and woman in their mid-60s.

Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to call the Davis Police Department at (530) 747-5400.
