Here is a photo of a possible suspect vehicle from the Feb. 10 incident.

Officers and detectives with the Edmonds Police Department are working with Lynnwood police to identify the person or persons who have approached children in the area of College Place Middle School after school has been released.

According to Edmonds Police Sgt. Josh McClure, there have been three reports since Jan. 23, with the two most recent being investigated by Edmonds PD. The school, located at 208th Street SW and 76th Avenue West, sits on the border between the two cities.

The most recent incident occurred Feb. 10 near 206th Street SW and 80th Avenue West. The suspect vehicle, described as a dark green 1990s four-door Toyota, pulled up next to a sixth grade boy and rolled down the window, but then quickly drove off.

The driver was described as white male in his 30s with brown hair, a medium to overweight build, and ripped clothing. There was also a passenger in the vehicle who was either a white male or female, who had bleached blonde, long matted hair that was darker on top.

In an earlier Edmonds incident on Jan. 31, a 14-year-old female was approached by a green older sedan near 206th and 76th. The vehicle was described as having brown interior and was driven by a white male in his 30s, with light facial hair. This suspect reportedly motioned for the female to come over to the car, but she ran away.

All three incidents have involved a green vehicle sedan-type vehicle. The Lynnwood incident was the first to have occurred involving a green "newer" sedan.

Police have also worked with the Edmonds School District. Investigators consider the behavior extremely suspicious and are actively working with the information they have.

If you or your child see anything suspicious, call 911. If you have any information about the vehicle, or who was driving it during these incidents, call the Edmonds PD tip line at 425-771-0212 or email policetips@edmondswa.gov.
