Police: Child luring report in Hempfield was false

Tuesday, April 1, 2014, 1:33 p.m.
 

A reported child luring attempt in Hempfield on March 22 turned out to be false, state police said Tuesday.

Police identified the man involved in the incident and learned that he initiated a conversation with a 9-year-old girl about the safe operation of her bike along Nicholas Lane in Green Hills Trailer Court.

The man told police he didn't exit his vehicle or attempt to lure the girl.

She told police that the man had an ice cream cone, exited the vehicle and attempted to grab her arm.

In a later interview, police said, it was determined the girl “incorrectly” recalled the chain of events.

No charges are expected.
