Henderson Police investigates attempted child luring case

Police are investigating an attempted child luring incident in Henderson. It happened around 9:45 a.m. Saturday near Patti Ann Woods Drive and Noble Isle Street.

According to officers, a person driving a white van with dark tinted windows tried to lure a child into it. Some of the windows of the van were painted white with animal caricatures.

Henderson Police said as the van drove by, a suspect, described as wearing a black hoody or mask, jumped out of it, while another person continued to drive. The suspects didn't say anything to the child before the child ran away, but police were concerned enough to send a letter to parents on Monday.

Police did not release any other description about the suspect or the driver.

Henderson Police released the following tips for parents to tell their children to remember when walking home from school.
