GRPD: 13-year-old accosted near school

GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) - Grand Rapids Police are looking for a man who picked up a 13-year-old girl Monday morning for "immoral purposes."

Police say the girl tells them that the suspect persuaded her to get into the van at about 7:45am for a ride to Westwood Middle School.  She was then driven to an unknown park area, where the police say she was accosted, but not sexually assaulted.  She was dropped back off at the school about about 8:05am.

The suspect is described as a hispanic male, heavy set, with a shaved head or very short hair, wearing boxers and a white t-shirt.  The van is described as a red or maroon over gray or silver, older minivan, possibly a Mercury Villager.  The front seat belts were automatic.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Grand Rapids Police at 456-3604 or Silent Observer at 774-2345.
