Girls report approach by stranger in C.D.

 


Three elementary-age girls walking down Central Drive in Coulee Dam were approached July 20 by a man who asked the girls to get in the truck with him.

The girls stated that the man was persistent in his attempt to get them to get into the truck with him before he drove away.

The girls described him as having short gray hair, dark red skin and driving a blue or gray pickup truck.

Two dogs, one black and white and the other brown, were in the back of the truck, described as an older model Ford with poles sticking up out of it, the kind used when hauling firewood or the like.

Coulee Dam police informed tribal police about the incident and stuck around the area to see if the man returned, but didn’t see him.

The mother of one of the girls said that the man drove away as soon as he saw her daughter with a cell phone. The man wasn’t anyone the girls recognized.
