Lexington police say a man tried to lure a teenage girl into his black vehicle Wednesday morning near Richardson Place and Jane Briggs Avenue.

The man allegedly told the 13-year-old girl if she got into the car, he would take her anywhere she wanted to go.

Police say the girl ran away and told her parents.

Many neighbors in the area are surprised something like this would happen in their low-crime neighborhood, and parents are now worried about their kids walking to nearby Jacobson Park and Edith J. Hayes Middle School.

According to police, the man did not commit a crime since the teenager never got into his vehicle, but they would still like to talk to him.

If you have seen a suspicious black vehicle in the area or know who this man may be, please contact the police.
