Hood County Sheriff Warns About Child Luring Attempts: 'Don't Give Sick, Evil Person' The Opportunity

HOOD COUNTY (CBSDFW.COM) - Hood County Sheriff's Office Deputies are warning parents to remain "vigilant and keep an eye on your kids, don't give a sick and evil person the opportunity to hurt your children," after two separate attempted child luring incidents within three days of each other.

The first happened on September 3 when a Hispanic male with short hair driving a black Chevy El Camino tried to lure her 4-year-old child into his car. It happened earlier in the day in the 800 block of Flamingo Rd.

Three days later, around 1:30 p.m., a parent told police that their 8 and 6 year old sons were approached by a woman in a green SUV who tried to lure them into her car with the ruse of petting a puppy.

Surveillance footage shows her car in the 3100 block of White Horse Ct. where the boys were playing in the front yard.
