Authorities investigating enticement attempt in Belle Plaine

Posted: Updated:

Benton County authorities are investigating an alleged child enticement attempt that was reported Thursday afternoon in Belle Plaine.

Authorities say an 11-year-old girl was approached by a man in an orange colored van near 5th Avenue and 15th street just before 1:15 Thursday afternoon. 

Police say the man in the van offered her a ride. The girl declined his offer and eventually ran to her grandmother's house after the man continued to follow her. 

The suspect is described as a heavy-set white male with dark-colored hair. He was also described as wearing a black shirt with Iowa Hawkeye branding on it. 

If you have information call Belle Plaine Police.
