Port Angeles School District warns of possible attempted luring

PORT ANGELES — The Port Angeles School District reported that a student was asked if she wanted a ride to school in what the district described as an attempted luring.

A Stevens Middle School student was walking on Doss Road toward her bus stop at 8:45 a.m. Wednesday, Patsene Dashiell, district spokeswoman, said in an email.

A man in a large white pickup truck driving on Doss Road pulled over and asked her if she wanted a ride to school.

She said no and he turned his vehicle around and drove back down the street.

He was described as a young man in his 20s, Caucasian, with blonde hair.

The student immediately told her mother and her parents notified the school and law enforcement.

More information was not immediately available Wednesday from the Port Angeles Police Department.
