SANTEE, Calif. (KGTV) — Deputies are searching for a man who attempted to lure a child into his vehicle this week.

A driver pulled alongside a nine-year-old girl riding her bike in the 8000 block of Poplin Dr. in Santee at about 6 p.m. Thursday and asked her if she would like a ride to a "game," San Diego Sheriff's Department says.

The girl became scared and rode her bicycle back to her house. She was not injured, according to deputies.

The suspect was described as a Caucasian male, about 60- to 70-years-old, with white hair, and wearing a red hat and chrome sunglasses.

His vehicle was described as a 2-door, silver convertible with a black top, possibly a Honda. The license plate is a handicapped plate with the number seven in it, SDSO said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 888-580-8477.
