LPD Report Attempted Abduction

The Lakeport Police Department is searching for a man who allegedly tried to lure two 11-year-old girls into his van Saturday. It happened as the girls were walking Saturday evening around 7:30 in the 800 block of North Main Street. The girls say a man, described as being 40 to 50 years old with longer graying hair, was sitting a light blue van in a driveway. As they walked by, they say he made a lewd comment to one of the girls. As they kept walking, he started following and told them to get in. The girls told LPD they hid behind a nearby restaurant and saw passed by several times while they hid. When they saw a patrol car, they flagged it down and reported the incident. A possible suspect was identified by the LPD, but the girls were unable to verify that it was the man who followed them, according to a release. If you have any information, contact Lakeport Police.
