Police: Men tried to lure 9-year-old girl into car

CHEROKEE COUNTY, Ga. -- The Cherokee County Sheriff's Office is investigating a claim that two men tried to lure a young girl into their car.

The men pulled up to the 9-year-old victim as she rode her bicycle at Charles and Stover roads at around 7 p.m. Sunday.

The girl told investigators the driver asked her, "Do you want to get in the car and go to a place?" When she said no, the men drove away.

An artist helped the girl create a composite sketch of the driver. The girl described him as a muscular Hispanic man with black hair worn in a Mohawk. The car's passenger was also Hispanic.

Two witnesses reported seeing the suspects' car on Stover Road Sunday evening. They said it was a gray or blue mid-1980's Toyota Camry with rust and blemishes. The witnesses told police the men did not match the descriptions of anyone living in the area.

Anyone with information in this case is encouraged to call Cherokee County Sheriff's investigators at 770-928-0239.
