PARKER, Colo. – Police are looking for a suspect involved in an attempted abduction of an 8-year-old boy in Parker Sunday afternoon.

Officers said a man tried to lure a child into his car in the Canterberry subdivision near the 2300 block of Broadmoor Drive at 2:34 p.m. Sunday. The child was reportedly approached by a white male who told him to get into his vehicle which is described as a black four-door sedan, according to police.

The boy told his parents about the incident, who then called police. A neighbor’s outdoor surveillance camera captured a photo of the car.

According to a spokesperson with the Parker Police Department, neighbors told police the driver of the sedan was a white male wearing a light-colored striped dress shirt. Neighbors also told police there was a teenage girl inside the car.
