‘Do you want any cards?’ Police warn residents about attempted luring of 11-year-old

Posted: Updated:

Police in West Windsor are warning residents about a reported attempted luring after an 11-year-old boy was approached by a vehicle on his way home from school.

The incident happened Thursday around 4:45 p.m. in the Mews Estates of Princeton Junction.

According to police, the boy, a student in the West Windsor-Plainsboro Public School District, was walking home from his bus stop when the man drove up next to him.

Police say the boy heard a male voice ask, "Do you want any cards?" and saw the suspect sitting in his vehicle with the driver's side window down. 

The boy ignored the suspect and continued home. He told his father about it Saturday.

The man is said to have been driving a blue sedan.

The suspect is described as a clean shaven African-American in his 20s, with an Afro hairstyle. He was operating a "weird" 4 door blue sedan.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 609-799-0452
