Des Moines police are investigating an attempted child enticement case.
A Des Moines mother says her six-year-old daughter and a seven-year-old friend were walking home from another friend’s house near East 12th Street and Ovid Avenue Tuesday when the incident happened.
The girls say a blue car approached and stopped at the corner and a man in the backseat asked them to get into the car.
The pair ran back home.
The man in the car was white and he was wearing a red shirt. He is believed to be about 30-years-old. The girls couldn’t provide a further description.
