Man Lures Girl Into Vehicle

On Monday, Nov. 25, 2013, at 3:40 p.m. a 12-year-old middle school student was walking through the Rite Aid Pharmacy parking lot, 709 Main St. The girl was approached by a light-skinned black male in his twenties, operating a silver colored SUV. The man told the girl his company had a “Holiday Modeling Offer” and he showed the girl three one hundred dollar bills he claimed they were offering to take pictures of the girl. The man convinced the girl to get into his vehicle. The subject attempted to get the girl to get in the back of his vehicle to take the pictures but she refused. The man also attempted to get the girl to disrobe to photograph her, but the girl was able to get out of the car unharmed and run home.

This subject is further described as tall, medium build, with large pink lips, a thin beard, and facial scruff. This man was wearing a red sweatshirt, a red baseball cap, and dark pants. The man has a scar or mark on the left side of his face and it appeared that he has a deformity to the fingers of his right hand.

We are asking anyone who was in the area of the Rite Aid Pharmacy on Main Street and Innis Avenue at that time, who may have seen this suspicious activity, or if someone knows this person from the detailed description given to call the City of Poughkeepsie Police Tip line at (845) 451-7577.
