    Police released a composite sketch of a man who allegedly tried to lure a middle school student into his car Tuesday as she walked home from school. Tony Guinyard reports for NBC4 News at noon from Culver City Friday, April 25, 2014.

    Officials are asking for the public's help to locate a man suspected of trying to lure a Culver City Middle School student into his car as she walked home from school Tuesday.

    At about 3 p.m. a man driving a green Ford Taurus or Toyota Camry, as described by the victim, drove up to a girl in the area of Farragut Drive, east of Overland Avenue.

    The suspect stopped his car and asked the girl what her name was through the passenger window. The girl turned to the car and asked the man what he was asking.

    The suspect then opened the passenger door of his car and said, "Just get in," according to a police statement.

    Fearing for her safety, the girl ran to a nearby Culver City Teen Center and reported the incident to an employee.

    The alleged abductor was described as a white/Hispanic male, possibly in his 30s, with a goatee.

    Police are asking anyone with information regarding the incident or alleged abductor to contact them at 310-253-6202.
