CLEVELAND-Cleveland police are looking for the suspect who attempted to lure a 12-year-old girl in his car while she was leaving school Tuesday afternoon.

The victim told police she was riding her bicycle home from Lincoln Preparatory School in Cleveland around 4 p.m. on Hyde Avenue when the incident occurred.

As the girl crossed the street near W.44th, a man driving down the road honked his horn.

According to police, the girl stopped and the suspect said, “get in.” The victim took off on her bike back to the school.

The suspect was driving a black jeep, possibly a Jeep Liberty with dark tinted windows and a missing rear mounted spare tire.

Multiple zone cars toured the area in an attempt to locate the driver and his vehicle but were unable to do so.

Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to contact the Second District Detective Bureau at 216-623-5218
