Attempted child enticement in Deerfield Township

DEERFIELD TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) - Police are investigating an attempted child enticement in Deerfield Township.

Police say a man approached an 11-year old child on Monday and asked the child to get into his car at a school bus stop. The child refused to get into the vehicle and when the suspect noticed a school bus approaching, left the area.

"He did everything right, at 11 years old. He was smart enough to know not to get into the van," said Warren County Sheriff Larry Sims.

The suspect is described as a white male, 50 to 60 years old, with a pale complexion, tall, muscular build, bald, dark mustache, glasses and wearing a torn white t-shirt.

The suspect's vehicle was described as a small, older white van, make or model unknown. The vehicle was reported to have white curtains in the windows, rusting on the sides and made a chirping or squealing noise when running.

Police believe this enticement case may be related to a series of attempts in Pierce Township, in Clermont County.

Col. James Smith with Pierce Township Police say the case is too close to what happened in his community. Pierce Township Police and the Warren County Sheriff's Office are now working together.

"Hopefully between the two agencies, we can put an end to this," said Smith.

Anyone who may have information regarding this offense is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 513-352-3040 or the Warren County Sheriff's Office at 513-695-1280.
