Man Tries Luring Young Boy Away from La Salle Campus

Pasadena Police are looking for a man who attempted to lure a young boy away with him outside a La Salle High School football game.

Pasadena Police have released a computer-generated sketch of a man believed to have tried luring an 11-year-old boy away from a football game at recently.

According to police, the boy was attending a football game at the school on Oct. 7 when--after he walked away from his parents to contact friends near the school parking lot at around 8 p.m.--the man "came out of some nearby bushes and placed his hand on the juvenile’s arm," according to a release from the Pasadena Police Department.

When the suspect directed the boy to go with him, the boy pushed the suspect away and ran back toward the field. The suspect then entered an older model, small size, dark pick-up truck and left the scene headed eastbound on Sierra Madre Boulevard. No similar incidents were reported to the police.

Police described the suspect as a male Caucasian in his mid 60s, 5 feet 9 inches, 130-140 pounds, short gray hair with thin eyebrows. A computer generated composite of the suspect’s likeness was completed and is attached to this article.

Anyone with information regarding this incident, or possible identification of the composite, is being urged to contact the Pasadena Police Department at (626) 744-4241.
