Riverside County authorities were searching for this suspectAuthorities in Riverside County Monday were searching for two suspects who followed two teenage girls in an SUV and tried to order them into the vehicle.

The two underage girls were walking along Temecula Creek Road in an unincorporated part of the county when the two males pulled up and one of them asked if the girls wanted a ride, the Riverside County Sheriff's Department said.

After the girls said no, the men left but returned. One of them shouted, "Get in the car!" as the two girls took off running, authorities said.

The girls told investigators that the suspects were driving a black SUV jeep, five to 10 years old, with large knobby tires and tinted windows.

One of the suspects was described as white and about 16 to 18 years old. He had sandy blond buzz-cut hair and was wearing a white T-shirt, authorities said.

Anyone with information is asked to call investigators at (951) 696-3000.
