Man Who Attempted to Pick Up Loveland Girl Identified


Carrie Martin Elementary Website

What a happy ending. A neighbor who thought he was being helpful offered a ride to a 13-year-old Loveland girl outside of Carrie Martin Elementary School in Loveland on Tuesday. The girl immediately ran into the school to report the incident and the car sped off. Larimer County Investigators commended the actions of the 13-year-old girl who immediately ran away from the vehicle and notified adults about the incident. All children should respond in the same manner if they are suspicious, even though later it may be determined not to be criminal in nature.

Parents should discuss abduction scenarios with their children and review regularly what they should do in case they are approached. Children should stay away from any vehicle unless they are sure they know the person. Parents should have a safety word known by them and the child to use if circumstances require another adult to pick up the child.

After receiving information from the public, the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office investigators were able to identify the man as a nearby neighbor who thought he was being helpful.  After speaking with the girl, her parents and the man, investigators determined that while the action caused the 13 year old concern, the gesture of offering a ride does not rise to the level of being criminal.
