LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Lubbock Police are trying to find two suspect who were accused of trying to lure an 8-year-old child who was riding a bicycle to a friend's house on Tuesday.

According to the police report, the child was riding her bike on the sidewalk in the 4700 block of 81st Street around 6:45 p.m. There were two people inside a blue pickup truck that stopped at the stop sign at Utica Ave.

The child told police the driver asked the child "do you want to take a ride back to your home?" in an attempt to coax the child into their vehicle. The child told the suspects "I don't want to," and the suspects drove off.

The child went on to her friend's house and police were called. The child's father was inside his home at the time.

The child told police both windows in the blue 2-door pickup were rolled down. The truck did not have running boards. Police did a search of the area, but the vehicle and the suspects were not located.

The child's father told police a similar incident happened on 81st Street on Aug. 17, but was not reported to the police.

Lt. Jon Caspell with the Lubbock Police Department says there is an ongoing investigation and patrol units have been alerted. "People in the area should not be worried, but of course be cautious and vigilant," he said in an email to KCBD. 

If anyone sees anything remotely suspicious along these lines, you're urged to call Crime Line at 806-741-1000. If there is an emergency, call 911. 

Unfortunately the suspect description and vehicle description are very general at this time, so anyone with information is asked to contact the police. Any new information is welcomed.

    Trump's demand puts further pressure on the Justice Department, which later Sunday asked its watchdog to expand an existing probe of FBI actions, as the White House combats the threat posed by special counsel Robert Mueller's ongoing investigation.
