BILLERICA -- Police are searching for a man who allegedly attempted to lure a middle school student into his car Wednesday, according to a Police Department press release.

The suspect was reportedly waiting near a bus stop at the intersection of Treble Cove Road and Wilson Street in North Billerica around 3:30 p.m. The middle school student described the suspect as a white male between the age of 40 and 60, with brown hair and no facial hair.

The suspect reportedly exited a tan station wagon, possibly a Buick Estate series wagon.

“The unknown male reportedly began speaking with the juvenile, stating, ‘Hey, Hey come here buddy, come get in my car,’” the release stated. “The juvenile used good instincts and did not comply, instead turning and running from the area directly to his house and told a parent.”

Police responded to the scene immediately, but the suspect had already fled. School Resource police officers were also notified and there is increased police patrol in the area.

There is no additional information on the suspect or incident.
