FERNDALE, Wash. – A transient has been jailed for a child luring attempt near Pioneer Park in Ferndale.

Police say 43-year-old Michael Evanson approached a child last Friday and tried to get the child to go with him to an obscure area on the east side of the Nooksack River near the park.

The child ran to its parents.

Witnesses later identified Evanson to officers.

He was arrested on a charge of luring and booked into the Whatcom County jail.
