LOVELAND, Colo. (CBS4)– Police in Loveland are searching for an attempted abduction suspect after a girl told them a man she didn’t know asked her to get into his van.
The 12-year-old girl told police about 3:30 p.m. on Monday she was riding her bike home from Lucile Erwin Middle School. When she reached the area of 43rd Street and Georgetown Drive she noticed that a blue delivery-style van with a white top with a yellow emblem and writing on the side was following her.
The man in the passenger seat of the van repeatedly asked her to get inside.
She told police that she was frightened and rode away from the van. That’s when she fell.
A young man in his mid-teens stopped to help her. He made sure she was okay and then left.

The driver of the van is described as a 30-40 year old Hispanic man with short black hair.
The passenger is described as a 30-40 year old white man with brown, shaggy hair. He was wearing a white tank top and had a large tattoo on his right bicep and shoulder area.
