Authorities seek man who tried to pick up girl

Authorities are looking for a man who tried to pick up a girl at a bus stop Thursday morning at Edgewood and Robinwood drives, according to a Washington County Sheriff's Department press release.

The girl told authorities the man, who was wearing a woman's wig and clothing, pulled up at the bus stop in an older-model, two-door car that was midsize and faded red in color, deputies said. The man asked the girl to get in the car, but she ran to her house, deputies said.

The girl said a skinny, white, teenage male with black hair was sitting in the back seat, deputies said.

Anyone with information on the incident may call the Washington County Sheriff's Department at 240-313-2100.
