Calgary police are investigating after reports of a possible attempted luring in the city's southwest Tuesday afternoon.

Around 3:45 p.m., police received a report that an eight-year-old girl had been approached by a man driving a dark-coloured vehicle on Shawnessy Drive near Shawnessy Court S.W.

The man allegedly asked the girl to get into the van. The girl ran home and told her mother, who called police. 

The man was described as wearing a long-sleeved, dark blue top, dark red jeans, as well as something covering his face. 
 
Officers have canvassed many of the homes in the area, and they ask anyone who may have information to call police.
