The girl said no and informed police, according to spokeswoman Cpl. Jodi Shelkie.

Officers conducted extensive patrols throughout the area, but were not able to find the driver. The suspect was described as a white male driving a white vehicle, however, police do not have any more information to go by.

“That’s all she had for us,” said Shelkie.

“It’s hard when you’re under stress,” Shelkie said. “Eye color, height, weight.

“Be the best witness you can be,” she said.
