In the most recent report, police said a man driving a dark green four-door Toyota pulled up next to a sixth-grade boy on Monday and rolled down the window, but then quickly drove off. According to police, a passenger with long bleached-blonde hair was also in the vehicle.

In a report on Jan. 31, police said a 14-year-old girl was approached by a green sedan. The driver was described by police as a white man in his 30s with light facial hair.

“The suspect reportedly motioned for the female to come over to the car, but she ran away,” a spokesperson for the police department wrote in a news release.

All three of the incidents reported involved a green sedan-type vehicle, police said.

The police department is working alongside the Lynnwood Police Department and the Edmonds School District in their investigation.

Anyone who sees anything suspicious is asked to call 911. Anyone with information about the vehicle and/or driver is asked to call the Edmonds PD tip line at 425-771-0212 or email policetips@edmondswa.gov.
