Man tries to lure 9-year old girls waiting for school bus

Perry County deputies are on the lookout for a man accused of trying to lure two 9-year old girls into his truck while they were waiting for the school bus.

The Sheriff's Department says it happened around 7:45 Monday morning at the intersection of Pine and West Valley Streets.

Some nearby older students yelled at the man and told him to leave, which he eventually did.

The girls describe him as a bald man in his 40's with a narrow chin goatee.

They say he was driving a two-tone brown GMC regular cab full size pick-up truck, which possibly has a bed cover and a picture of a deer on the back window.

A school resource officer will be at that bus stop every morning and afternoon for the next few days.
