Police are investigating a report that man tried to lure an elementary school-aged girl from the driveway of her Mechanicsburg area home Wednesday afternoon.

Upper Allen Township police said the man reportedly asked the young girl to get into a blue minivan, then left the area when she refused.

The young girl reported the incident to her mother, who then contacted police.

The incident occurred on Belvedere Drive in the otherwise quiet Kimberly Meadows development.

Word of the incident spread quickly, and neighbors said they are in the lookout.

"Shock and a concern, and it does made you angry that somebody would do such a thing," neighbor Donna Schlegel said.

Police said the report is credible. No other details were immediately available.

Anyone with information may call Upper Allen police at (717) 238-9676 or leave an anonymous tip by calling or texting 717-850-UAPD (8273).
