On August 21, 2019, at approximately 5:37 p.m., Spokane Valley Deputies responded to the report of suspicious activity in the area of the 8700 block of E. Alki. They received information a white male, driving an older, faded or dirty white, minivan with a “blocky nose,” attempted to contact a young female as she rode her bike. As the young girl waited for another child to cross the street, the male stopped, told her he knew her, and “get in.” He then drove away without saying anything else, nor did he attempt to exit his vehicle.
The 9-year-old girl was able to provide this detailed description: a white male (early 20’s-estimate), dirty/greasy, shoulder-length blond hair. She said he clenched his teeth and his face appeared flushed red and covered in acne.
She and her mother, who observed the incident, believed they had seen the minivan around the neighborhood, but neither of them knew the man.
Anyone who can help identify this male, help locate the vehicle, or can provide any information about this or similar incidents, is asked to call Crime Check at 509-456-2233, reference #10118548.
