TEMPLE TERRACE — A man tried to lure a 16-year-old boy waiting for a school bus Wednesday morning into his pickup truck, authorities said.
The attempted abduction happened about 6:30 a.m. at the bus stop near the intersection of Shadow Lane and Bahamas Avenue. The man approached the waiting teen and unsuccessfully tried to persuade him to get into a white pickup truck, possibly a Ford, according to police.
Authorities said the man, believed to be in his 40s or 50s, has been seen in the area both in the morning about 6:30 a.m. and in the afternoon about 3 p.m.
Anyone with information about the suspect or his vehicle was asked to contact Temple Terrace police immediately.
