WARREN - The mother of a 5-year-old Warren girl told police a man tried to coax her daughter into getting into his truck on Saturday.
The woman told police that the child was playing in the front yard of their Belmont Avenue home about 4:40 p.m when a man in a red S-10-style pickup truck pulled up next to the girl, according to Warren police reports.
Reports state that the man, described as white and in his 50s or 60s, told the girl to "come here" and when she refused he demanded that she come to his truck.
The girl told her mother, who said she saw the truck pull away from the area, reports state.
Meanwhile, later that same day a Peace Avenue woman told police a man she knows tried to lure her 8-year-old son and another child into his vehicle.
It is not clear whether the incidents were connected.
