Suspicious Incident In Golden Gate

Deputies are investigating a report of a suspicious incident involving a child as she walked home from school in Golden Gate on Tuesday.

Reports say the girl’s mother told deputies that her 14-year-old daughter had been approached by two males in a white car as she walked home along Tropicana Boulevard from Golden Gate Middle School in the afternoon.

The males, described as around 17 years old, made a U-turn and slowly pulled up behind her when one of the males yelled, “Get in the car and ride with us.”

The girl ignored them and continued walking. When other traffic behind the car began blowing their horns for them to move, the car drove away.

No other details were available.

An investigation continues.
