OTIS ORCHARDS, Wash. -- Authorities said a woman tried to lure a 5-year-old girl near the child’s home Monday.
According to investigators, the girl came inside her home Monday evening and was upset. The 5-year-old reportedly told her mother there was a lady standing next to their mailboxes who said she was the girl’s mother and told her to “get over here.”
The suspect was described as having yellow hair and wearing black clothing with pink stripes. The girl also said the suspect was tan and looked older than her 36-year-old mother.
Authorities said the girl told her mother the suspect pulled a gun from her pocket. There was never mention that the weapon was pointed at the daughter, officials said.
As of Thursday, there were no further details on the possible suspect. Anyone with information was asked to call Crime Check at 509-456-2233.
