PORTLAND – A “creepy guy” reportedly approached an 11-year-old girl in Southeast Portland Tuesday afternoon.
Just after 4 p.m., a caller reported to police that a “creepy” man was driving a silver 4-door sedan in the area of Southeast 18th Avenue and Southeast Rex Street, said Sgt. Pete Simpson with Portland police.
Police could not locate the car but the caller reported that his daughter was playing in the area when the stranger approached her. Police spoke with the girl who said she was playing outside when the man parked his car and got out.
He then walked over to her and asked her name and how old she was. She ran away and told her dad what happened.
He was described as a white man in his 30s with short brown hair. He was wearing jeans and a t-shirt and had no facial hair or glasses.
Anyone with information was asked to call police.
