Alhambra police are looking for a man they say attempted to lure a girl into his car, promising candy and a puppy.
Detectives say the girl was walking home from Northrup School near Atlantic Blvd and Mission Rd when an Asian male, pulled up in a car and called out to the child.
"Hey little girl," "I have a little white puppy and some Jolly Ranchers," "Get in the car and I will give it to you," police said.
The child fled from the scene and told her mother who called police and the Alhambra School District.
Police say the man was described as an Asian man in his 30s with short, black hair and dark eyes. He had a fair-to-tan complexion and was clean shaven. The child said the man spoke with an accent and was wearing a light blue shirt and jeans.
Authorities say the man drove off in a bright red Toyota with four doors and could be a Corolla with a light tint on the windows. The license plate began with a '7'.
Alhambra Police are asking anyone with any information to contact Detective Lopez at (626) 570-5159 and refer to CR #18-645.
