The Brunswick Police Department is investigating a report that an unknown male subject may have attempted to lure an 11 year old female into his vehicle in the area of Spring Street and the Harriet Beecher Stowe School. The incident occurred at approximately 1:30 this afternoon, and the male subject was described as a white male, possibly in his 20’s or 30’s, with curly blonde hair and a beard, driving a white car. The subject reportedly drove slowly behind, and then next, to the female juvenile and attempted to make conversation before asking her to come closer to his vehicle. The juvenile declined to approach the vehicle and returned home without incident. There are currently no charges pending in this investigation. The incident raises obvious concern in the community, and the Brunswick Police Department is asking anyone who may have witnessed the interaction, or has any other information on this incident, to contact us at 725-5521. Thank you.
