Man tries to get teenage girl into his vehicle

Police searching for suspect

CAMARILLO, Calif. - The Camarillo Police Department is asking for the public's help to identify a man who tried to get a teenager in his car.

It happened Monday morning along Arneil Road in Camarillo.  The teen was walking down the road when a Hispanic male with a shaved head, driving a blue four door sedan asked her to get into his car.

The girl refused to get into the vehicle and kept walking, but the suspect continued to follow her and ask her to get inside, according to police.  The suspect then offered to give her money and asked a "sexually motivated question," according to the police report.

Police captured a photo of the vehicle and are asking anyone with information to contact the Ventura County Sheriff's Office at 805-654-9511.

In addition, the CPD is asking parents to discuss with their children what to do if they are approached by a stranger and to encourage them to walk in groups and never get into a stranger's car.
