A man who attempted to “lure” a child who was walking to Norco Elementary School in Riverside County was being sought for child annoyance by the local sheriff’s department, according to a Thursday news release.

The child, whose gender and age was not disclosed, was walking to the campus, located in the 1700 block of Temescal Avenue (map), around 8:30 a.m. Wednesday when the incident occurred, according to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.

The man approached the juvenile and “attempted to lure the victim to a nearby location,” the Sheriff’s Department news release stated.

The child refused the man’s advances and continued to school uninjured.

After school, the child informed his/her parents of the incident and they contacted sheriff’s deputies around 4:30 p.m.

The man sought was described as white, about 30 years old, standing about 6 feet tall and weighing about 155 pounds.

He had “numerous” tattoos on his arms, black “spikey” hair, and was wearing a white T-shirt, baggy blue jeans and red tennis shoes similar to the Converse brand.

Sheriff’s deputies were working with the Corona-Norco Unified School District on the investigation.

Anyone with any information was asked to call Investigator Contreras at 951-955-2600.
