Newcastle Police said two men attempted to lure a young boy into their truck on Wednesday evening.

Police said two men inside a small, white, unmarked pickup truck with an attached black trailer filled with what looked like landscaping tools approached a boy walking his dog in the 14200 block of Southeast 92nd Street between 6:20 p.m. and 6:40 p.m.

The driver ordered the boy to get into the truck. The boy then ran to safety.

The car was described as having constant, heavy exhaust, and a visible dent on the driver’s door.

Police said the driver and passenger looked very similar, possibly related. They are described as thin or average-sized white or Hispanic males, aged 25-30. The passenger also had ear spacers in his earlobes. Read more
