Police say that at about 6:30pm, a 17 year old male was running on Weekstown Road, near the transfer station, when he was approached by a man in the car.

Police describe the man as "heavy-set" with medium length dark hair. He was driving a navy blue SUV.

Mullica Township Police say the man approached the teenager and requested the boy to "come grab this" - referring to a paper he held out the driver's window.

Police say the boy ignored the man and continued to run.

The man then drove ahead and ultimately turned the vehicle around. The teen says he watched the vehicle to continue to travel east on Weeketown Road, towards Weekstown, and out of site.

Police are asking anyone with information on the incident to contact them at 609-561-7600, extension 155.

This is the second possible attempted luring attempt reported by police in the last couple of weeks. Hammonton Police reported an incident back in the middle of April in Hammonton. That incident also involved a blue SUV.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
