A man attempted to lure a girl into his truck near West 42nd and Robert Street after school on Tuesday afternoon. 

According to Lisa Lyons, principal of Lincoln Prep School, a girl was riding her bike around 3:55 p.m. when a man in a black truck approached her near the intersection of West 42nd and Robert Street. 

The man asked her if she wanted to get into the truck, and the girl rode her bike back to Lincoln Prep School.

Cleveland police arrived on the scene to take the report and have increased patrols in the neighborhood in search of the suspect. The student's parents picked her up from the school and took her home.
