BROOMFIELD, Colo. (CBS4) – Police need leads to find the men targeting girls in Broomfield.
The men have tried twice to get the girls inside their cars. The most recent case was near Legacy High School. There was another incident earlier this month near 135th and Lowell Street.
The Adams 12 School District sent home a letter to parents telling them about the suspicious activity and urging students to walk in pairs and be alert.
“It scares me because there are people out there who want to purposely take someone and hurt them,” student Farron Lee said.
In the first incident a 14-year-girl was offered a ride by a white or Hispanic man in his 40s.
“She refused and he asked her again, and again she refused and the suspect left,” Brendan Sullivan with Broomfield police said.
The man’s car is described as a white four-door Jeep, possibly a Cherokee or Patriot, with dark, tinted windows and gray paint resembling camouflage from the door handles down.
In the second incident near Legacy High School two teens girls were walking when a young Hispanic man, possibly in his late teens or 20s, asked the girls several times to talk with him.
“He followed them to their home, they went inside and then he left the area,” Sullivan said. “That’s a bold move.”
The car is described as an older model, white rectangular shaped car with a “spolier” and possibly tinted lights.
“We need to walk home in groups to make sure that we’re safe,” student Eva Anderson said.
Police say keep to cellphones close and in easy reach. Snap pictures, take video and do not hesitate to call them.
