COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – An 8-year-old Columbus girl says a man tried to lure her into his truck last week.

The child told her father about the incident on Friday.

The father says his daughter was walking home from J-B Key Elementary School when a man called out to her at a stop sign.

We're told his daughter took off running.

Police are investigating it as an "enticing a child for indecent purposes" case. The girl describes the man as white, between the age of 40 and 50, large build, full beard wearing a white hat and blue shirt and driving an unknown white truck.

This incident follows a January 6th attack on East Columbus Magnet Academy student.
