An 11-year-old told his father that while he was riding his bicycle on Trujillo LN around 3 p.m. Tuesday an unknown white male with a moustache, red baseball cap and navy blue shirt tried to entice him into a white van by offering him candy.

The unknown make or model van was described as being older, all white with black wheels, tinted windows and a metal ladder attached to the rear. Officers were unable to corroborate the allegations, however, patrols of the area have been increased.
