LAKE STEVENS, Wash. -- The Snohomish County Sheriff's Office is looking for a man suspected of attempting to lure a 14-year-old girl into his van last week near Lake Stevens.

According to the Sheriff's Office, the girl was walking in the 1700 block of 114th Avenue Southeast around 6 p.m. May 21 when she noticed a white van with blue stripes following her.

The van pulled in front of the girl, blocking her path, and the driver asked her where she was going and if she needed a ride, according to the Sheriff's Office.

The girl got scared and ran away but not before the driver reportedly took a picture of her with his cellphone.
