Police are investigating an attempted luring report of a 10-year-old girl while she played outside her apartment complex.

On Saturday at approximately 9 p.m., the Brick Township Police Department received a call to respond to the Waterside Gardens Apartment Complex in reference to attempted child abduction.

The 10-year-old female victim, who resides in Waterside Gardens, reported to Officer Mike Miller that she was playing hide and seek with her friends when two male subjects called her to come to them. When she refused, they followed her.

One of the males got close enough to her and told her that if she didn’t go with them, he would force her to go.

The male then grabbed her by the arm. The victim pulled away and fled away from the subjects. The males ran in the opposite direction and entered a running minivan and drove away.

The subjects are described as follows;

Subject#1 is a white male, wearing a NY Yankees baseball hat, blue tank top shirt and blue jeans. He was described as having tattoos covering both of his arms, to his wrists. He smelled of alcohol and body odor.

Subject #2 is a white male, wearing white cargo shorts, tan shirt and glasses. He was wearing an unknown colored baseball hat. He may have had a tattoo on his right bicep.

The subjects drove off in a vehicle that was described as a dirty, blue colored minivan with silver rims.

Anyone who may have information please call the Police Department at 732 262-1100 or the Detective Shepherd at 732 262 1121.
