The Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office is seeking information about a suspect who ordered a boy to get into his truck in the Katy area.

On Thursday, January 31, at about 6:30pm, a 13-year-old boy was riding his bicycle home when he was approached by a man in a pickup truck. The incident occurred near the intersection of Debra's Trace and Oxford Bend Lane not far from Beck Junior High School.

The boy said the man stopped and ordered the boy to get into the truck. At that point, the boy took off on his bike as fast as he could and he said the man sped away in his truck.

"The male never made any inticing statements to him, he never got out of the vehicle to chase him, grab him or anything," said Detective Justin White with the Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office.

According to the Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office, the driver of the pickup was described as being a chubby Hispanic male, about 40 years of age with short, thick black hair and a mustache. The boy said he also had a tattoo on his left cheek but could not make out the design. The man was wearing a long-sleeve button-down shirt with stripes.

The vehicle is described as an older model single cab pickup truck, beige or brown in color with a dark tinted rear window. The boy said there was a sticker on the back window, but he could not see what it said.

Anyone who may have seen the truck or the incident is asked to call the Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office Dispatch at 281-341-4665.
