YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: A Hackensack boy told police a man attempted to lure him to his car on his way to middle school this morning by asking him to help search for his sister’s lost dog.
The boy said he was approached near the corner of Union Street and Lawrence Avenue just after 7:30 a.m. by a man in a two-door Honda Civic with tinted windows, Detective Capt. Thomas Salcedo told CLIFFVIEW PILOT .
The boy said the car had some type of sticker on the front windshield, but he didn’t know what it said.
He described the driver as white or Hispanic, in his 20s to 30s, with short black spiked hair and a goatee.
He said the man asked to help him find a lost dog, then drove off north on Union Street when he refused.
This comes after a series of attempted luring reports last week in Norwood, Ridgefield Park and Leonia ( see below ).
