    Pembroke Pines Police are looking for a man who tried to lure a 14-year-old girl into his car.

    The incident happened Saturday as the girl was walking along the sidewalk with some friends near the Brittany Bay subdivision of the Silver Lakes Community, Pembroke Pines Police said.

    The man, who was in an older model pickup truck, pulled up to the girl and asked "Do you want to get to know me?" police said. The girl shook her head no and when the man asked if she was sure, she shook her head yes.

    As the man kept speaking with the girl, she grabbed her cell phone and pretended to make a call then ran to catch up with her friends, police said.

    Police describe the suspect as a white male, about 60 years old with an unshaven beard. The truck had an open bed and a darker tan stripe on the side.

    Anyone with information is asked to call Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.
