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.
Residents that live in the Highlands neighborhood and own a security camera are asked to review footage for any sign of the described vehicle and trailer.
Anyone with information about the listed vehicle or occupants should call the Newcastle Police at 649-4444, or the police non-emergency dispatch number at 206-296-3311, and reference case #14-088085.
