Issaquah Police said a man attempted to lure a 12-year-old boy into a vehicle near Timberlake Park on Tuesday afternoon.

Police said a man driving a late-model, dark-purple SUV approached a boy walking on the sidewalk in the 4300 block of 182nd Avenue Southeast at about 2:35 p.m.

The man asked the boy if he wanted a ride. The boy then declined, and the man asked if he was sure. The boy left unharmed.

Police described the driver as a white man, about 50 years old, with short, gray hair and dark eyes.

Authorities reminded parents to review safety procedures with children, and to report suspicious activity and people to police.

Direct questions about the incident to Detective Sgt. Bob Porter, or the on-duty patrol sergeant, at 837-3200.
