The Kansas University Office of Public Safety continues to investigate a reported attempt by a man to lure a 9-year-old boy into his car Monday afternoon.

Capt. Schuyler Bailey, a KU Public Safety spokesman, said on Tuesday that the office had no new information.

The suspect, described as a black male, possibly with braided hair and a beard, attempted to lure the boy into his car around 5:30 p.m. Monday near 19th Street and Anna Drive. The intersection is close to Stouffer-Place apartments, an on-campus housing complex whose tenants include couples and students with children.

The victim described the suspect's car as large and brown.

KU public safety officials encourage those with information to call Crime Stoppers at 785-864-8888 or the KU Office of Public Safety at 785-864-5900.
