Man accused of trying to entice girl, 6
Hillsborough deputies arrested a 32-year-old man Saturday and charged him with trying to lure a 6-year-old girl into his car. Jose Luis Moreno Garcia of 5427 Palm Dunes Court was charged with luring or enticing a child in the incident, which happened at about 4 p.m., deputies say.
The girl was riding her bike, and deputies say Moreno stopped his Mercury Marquis and asked the girl to come over to his vehicle. But the girl's father was nearby, saw what was happening and ran over and punched Moreno.
The girl's family called the Sheriff's Office which responded and found Moreno sitting in his vehicle at his apartment.
