Mesa PD: Girl, 12, reports attempted abduction


Mesa police were looking for two men after a 12-year-old girl said they tried to lure her into their van.

The girl said she was walking alone to a store on North Horne just north of University Drive about 8 p.m. when the van pulled slowly alongside her and the two men tried to persuade her to get in, according to a Mesa police report.

She said she refused and the van drove north on Horne. She and her mother called police.

Police described the suspects as a 40-year-old Hispanic man wearing a white shirt and driving the van, and 45-year-old black man wearing a black shirt sitting in the passenger seat.

The van was an older model, white work van with rust and primer gray spots, a sliding door behind the driver's door, no seats in the back, rusty rims and possibly a Nebraska license plate.

Anyone with information about the suspects or the van is asked to call Mesa police.
