At approximately 3 p.m. [Thursday, Nov. 15], Port Angeles Police responded to a report of a child abduction attempt in the area of Lauridsen Boulevard and Race Streets.
A 9 year-old and an 11 year-old told officers an older black pickup truck stopped, the front-seat passenger opened the door and asked if they wanted to get in.
The children told police they did not know any of the occupants, so they declined. The suspect vehicle drove away westbound on Lauridsen Boulevard.
Suspect Vehicle: Black, older-model, Chevy, 2-door, pickup truck. The truck was dirty, lowered and with possibly tinted windows.

Front Seat Passenger: White male, dirty-blonde hair, mid-length to ears.

Person in bed of truck: White male, late-teens, black and green ball cap with straight bill, gray sweatshirt with dark blue jeans
