A 31-year-old West Seattle man is in custody after police say he tried to lure a 13-year-old girl into his car on Tuesday.

The incident happened on the 3700 block of South Angeline St. in the south Seattle area.

A woman called police after she heard the young girl scream for help. The 13-year-old told her a man in a BMW was following her home and tried to get her into his car, the woman said.

Officers arrested the 31-year-old for investigation of luring.

Police say they don't know yet if the incident is related to the White Center attempted abduction that occurred earlier this month, but they're not ruling it out.
