Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers is looking for a man who tried to lure a young girl into his vehicle Saturday afternoon in Cape Coral.

Crime Stoppers said the girl was walking home from the Walmart on Skyline Boulevard around 4:50 p.m. when an unidentified black man in a grey minivan pulled up next to the victim. The victim told police that the man said she was beautiful and that she should get into the backseat of his car. An alert neighbor witnessed the incident and intervened, which caused the suspect to flee the area, according to a report.
