A 16-year-old girl tells police that a man asked her to get into his car and offered to take her to a store to buy her something.
It happened around a.m. last Monday in the 7100-block of South Sacramento.
The girl was able to get onto the bus and get away.
The man was driving a gray, four-door, mid-size sedan.
