Two Men Attempt To Lure Child Of Police Officer In Versailles

Posted: Updated:

WOODFORD COUNTY, Ky (LEX 18) A Versailles mom has warned others after she says a man tried to get her son into a van while he was riding his bike Monday afternoon.

"He said, 'Mom, two guys just tried to get me to get into their van'," said Casey Geilear. The close call was the farthest thing from the mother's mind when her son went out to ride his bike.

She told LEX 18 her son came home that day and was 'white as a ghost'. Her son told her that two middle-aged white men in a white van pulled up beside him and said, "Hey what are you doing?" When the boy didn't respond, they said, "our dog is lost will you please get in the van with us and help us find him."

The 11-year-old, whose father is a police officer, was not buying it, he sped home the long way, so they wouldn't know where he lives.

"It's terrifying to think that there are people out there that will do harm to these precious children," said Geilear. 

Geilear is now hoping that Versailles Police catch the men and that other parents learn from her son's terrifying encounter. 

“You know it's important you know where they're going, it's important that you check up with them, and it's so important you teach them what to do," she said.

Versailles Police confirm they are investigating the incident. The van was white with no windows and a spare tire on the back. If you see anything suspicious, call police.
