Girl flees man in Suburban

A 16-year-old Grand Junction girl fled from an unidentified Latino man who repeatedly demanded that she get into his car about noon Wednesday, said Grand Junction Police Department spokeswoman Kate Porras.

The teen, who attends classes at Western Colorado Community College, said she was walking to a tanning salon when a man exited a fast food restaurant drive-through in the 1200 block of North Avenue, pulled up next to her and asked for directions.

After providing directions, the girl said she tried to walk away, but the man continued to drive alongside her in a red Suburban and demanded several times that she get into his car and show him the route. She refused and ran away.

The man, described as dark-skinned with short, dark hair, wearing reflective sunglasses, in his mid-30s and in good physical condition, drove into a nearby residential area.
