PCSO looking for suspect who attempted to lure New Port Richey girl

- The Pasco County Sheriff’s Office is looking to identify a man who allegedly approached a child in New Port Richey and tried to lure her to his car.

Deputies say the incident occurred Thursday afternoon at approximately 2:30 p.m. The girl was walking home from her bus stop at Orange Grove and Washington Street when a man driving a small blue SUV approached her.
