Don’t Talk to Strangers

A man allegedly tries to coerce a child to get into a vehicle.

According to Salina Police, in the 1200 block of Republic Circle yesterday a young girl was stopped while crossing the street by a man in a white pick-up truck.

The man, reportedly in his 30’s, offered the 9-year-old girl a ride in his truck and other incentives to get in to the vehicle.

The girl continued to walk towards her friends house and told what happened to an adult who then reported the incident to police.

The truck was a white, extended cab pick-up with a sun roof. The man, a white male, was wearing a black and white ball cap.
