A man reportedly tried to lure a 15-year-old girl into his car on an isolated road in Mt Barker on Sunday afternoon. Police say the teenage girl was walking along Mt Barker Road towards Braidwood Road about 2.15pm on Sunday, March 21 when the man stopped in his red four-wheel-drive. The man, believed to be 30 to 40 years old, repeatedly asked the young girl to get in the car, telling her it was too hot for her to be walking outside. The girl refused. After asking her several times to get into his vehicle, he then watched her walk into a friend’s driveway nearby. The incident was reported to police, with the girl’s mother issuing a warning over social media. Mt Barker police officer-in-charge Sgt David Johnson said the man was 30 to 40 years old, with olive skin, black hair and a tattoo on his left shoulder. He was wearing a black singlet and shorts. “It was reported to us and we haven’t been able to locate anything yet,” Sgt Johnson said yesterday. “We are liaising with detectives to further our investigation. “It’s a bit isolated up there and there is not huge amounts of traffic so we are appealing to the public to come forward. “If anyone saw anything suspicious or the man or car that match our description to get in touch with police immediately.” Police also received a report the man’s red four-wheel-drive was seen about 5.45pm on Wednesday near the Chester Pass Mall in Albany. The vehicle is described as a smaller, late-model four-wheel-drive with rails on the roof. Anyone with information is asked to contact Albany Police Station on 9892 9300 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
