The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office is investigating after a teenage girl reported that a man was trying to lure her younger sister into a van at a Racetrack Road convenience store Wednesday.



The teen was at the Circle K near Pryor Middle School to pick up her 12-year-old sister around 2:30 p.m. when she saw a white male standing near an unmarked white utility van appearing to try to coerce her sister into his vehicle.


She says the man had blonde hair and looked to be between 30 and 40 years old.


The younger girl gave deputies a similar statement and says she ran to her sister’s car in a panic and jumped inside.


The pair contacted their mother to report what happened. She then contacted the OCSO.


The incident is under investigation.
