Authorities say a man tried to lure an elementary-school-age boy while he was walking home in Edmonds.
The boy was walking in the 20100 block of 76th Avenue West around 3:15 p.m. on Wednesday when a man in a pickup approached him and demanded that he get inside, Edmonds police said in a news release.
The child ran away and reported the incident to his mother.
Police said the child told investigators he believes the same man contacted him two previous times.

He described the man as white, about 35 years old, with “spikey” brown hair and an unshaven face, the release says.
Police urge anyone with information on the man to contact the department.
