BOTHELL, Wash. – The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office is seeking information from the public about a child luring incident that occurred yesterday.  A 12 year-old female Skyline Jr. High student reported that as she was walking home around 3 p.m. from her bus stop at the intersection of 196th St SE and 24th Dr SE when a man sitting in a parked pick-up truck jumped out, grabbed her, and yelled, “Boo!”  The girl said it appeared that the man then noticed three other students in the area, got back into his vehicle, and fled the area.  Witnesses to the incident corroborated her account of events.

The suspect is described as a white male in his mid-40’s, 5’8”-5”11” tall, with gray medium length hair and a gray beard.  He was driving a tan colored standard cab pickup truck.
