News-DemocratAugust 26, 2013 

A 10-year-old metro-east girl says she was approached Sunday morning by a motorist who offered her a ride in his car, according to a KMOV report.

It's the second time in the last three months that the girl, who was riding her bicycle at the time the motorist made contact with her Sunday, said she was confronted by the same man.

"A vehicle approached her," the girl's mother, who was not named to protect the child's identity, told KMOV. "It happens to be the same vehicle that approached her a couple of months ago."

Her mother said the girl was only a block from her home along Broadway in south Roxana. She was riding to a nearby store.

The report did not give a description of the suspect or his vehicle.
