WAKE FOREST, N.C. – Police in Wake Forest are warning parents to be on the lookout for two men accused of using a kitten to try to lure children into an SUV FoxNews reports.
The men are allegedly offering rides to children and asking about a missing kitten.
Police said they are in a silver or gray four-door SUV that is damaged on the passenger side and missing the passenger side mirror.
The passenger of the vehicle is described as a white male between the ages of 18 and 24 with blonde or brown hair, wearing a baseball cap and sunglasses.
According to ABC News Wayne Sadlowski’s 8-year-old daughter was approached by the two suspects.
“It’s obviously very scary,” said Sadlowski. “She was walking to her friend’s house and she got to the corner and a car came down the street. When it got to her, it stopped. And there was a man driver, who out the window said to her, ‘Do you need a ride?”
ABC new reported that the dad says his daughter starting running from the men.
“She ran behind the car across the street to her friend’s house,” said Sadlowski. “We’ve had conversations since then and we dodged a bullet. You can do what you can do and be vigilant, but there are bad people out there.”
