Solon -- Solon Police are trying to locate "a younger white male with tattoos on his right arm" who reportedly yelled at an 8-year-old girl to "get in his car" in a Solon neighborhood Aug. 2.

According to police, the suspect was driving a small, black pickup truck on McDowell Drive around 7:30 p.m. when he yelled at the girl, who had been dropped off at the mailbox by her father to get the mail.

As the father pulled into the garage and exited the vehicle, he reported hearing the suspect scream something and saw his daughter running up the driveway. The girl told police that the suspect said "get in the car" and that the suspect was laughing as he drove away.

According to police, the driver of the pickup never stopped the vehicle.

"We find it disturbing that someone would do something that would scare an 8-year-old child, and we would like to identify the individual and discuss the incident with them to determine what their intent was," said Solon Lt. Bruce Felton in an Aug. 9 release.

Anyone with information about this should contact 440-337-1460.
