Man drove up to teen at night, began an 'inappropriate' conversation.

Glendora Police released the sketch of a man suspected of engaging a teen male in a conversation with sexual overtones and attempted to get the teen inside his truck.

The incident happened Oct. 18 in the 1600 block of South Barranca Avenue. Around 9:15 p.m. the suspect drove up to the 16-year-old boy, parked along the curb and started a conversation with him. The suspect then began asking questions with sexual overtones, police said in a statement.

The suspect reportedly "attempted to persuade the victim to get into the vehicle, trying to open the passenger side of the vehicle," police said. The teen held the door shut and then fled to his residence.

The suspect is described as an Hispanic male, in his late 20s to early 30s, heavy set, with dark hair and unshaven, police said.
