WESTMINSTER, Colo. (CBS4)- Police in Westminster are searching for a man who tried to lure a girl into his car.

Police said the 11-year-old girl was walking to the bus stop in the 12300 block of Huron Street in Westminster about 7 a.m. Thursday.

That’s when a man approached her and tried to get her to go with him in his car.

The girl was able to run away and tell an adult.

The man is described as white, 5-foot-9 to 6 feet tall, about 40 years old with brown hair. He was last seen wearing a blue T-shirt and black jeans.
