Sheriff’s: Men tried to lure children into car near Solana Beach school

Two men tried to lure children walking home from a Solana Beach school into their dirty car last week, and sheriff’s investigators are asking the public to help find them.

A 13-year-old boy told deputies he was walking home from Earl Warren Middle School on Stevens Avenue about 3 p.m. when a truck pulled alongside him, sheriff’s Sgt. Joe Tomaiko.

A passenger in the newer-model Chevrolet sedan then asked, “Hey kid, you wanna get in?”

The child ignored the man, but heard him utter the same question to other nearby children. The boy told investigators he didn’t see any children get into the car.

One man was described as white and in his late 20s with brown curly hair. He was wearing sunglasses. The other man was described as being white, in his early 30s and bald. Anyone with information about the pair was asked to call the Sheriff’s Department at (858) 565-5200.
