Girl says she fought off man who tried to entice her with candy

FEDERAL WAY -- A young 8-year-old girl fought off a man who is believed to have attempted to lure her Saturday afternoon near the Brigadoon Elementary School.

"I heard a guy who said, 'Do you want some candy?'," Nevaeh told investigators. "And I screamed, 'No' and I ran down the hill and I tripped.”

Sunday afternoon, Nevaeh and her mother went to the Federal Way Police Department to work with a sketch artist. Fortunately for police, Nevaeh said she has a good memory and can express herself well. She described the suspects as a Hispanic man in his 30s with brown hair and a mustache.

Police hope to release a composite sketch of the suspect Monday.
