2 Men Sought for Attempting to Lure Alpine Girl into Van: SDSO

San Diego County Sheriff’s Deputies are looking for two men who tried to lure a 10-year-old girl into a van in Alpine.

Deputies say around noon Sunday the girl was playing outside an apartment complex on Arnold Way near Flo Drive.

She told officials the driver of a white van asked her if she wanted a ride.

He then asked her if she wanted candy and said he had some in the van, deputies said.

The girl told deputies she was able to run away and hide in some bushes.

On Tuesday, officials released a composite sketch of the driver.

He was described as a white man with freckles on his face, a black-hooded sweatshirt with a drawstring pulled tight around his face and black sweatpants, driving a white minivan with tinted windows down the sides and a pink breast cancer sticker on the back. The van reportedly had two pieces of lumber on the roof.

There is no description for the second suspect, who stayed in the passenger seat during the incident, according to officials.

The apartment complex is located south of Interstate 8 and east of Tavern Road.

Anyone with information about this case can call the Sheriff's Department non-emergency line at (858)565-5200.
