Lincoln police say they've arrested the man who was trying to entice a 13-year-old girl into his vehicle.

Officer Katie Flood said that 24-year-old Waltrivelish J. Watson was taken into custody Sunday for child enticement.

Flood said the incident occurred around 5 p.m. Monday, near Randolph and Capitol Parkway, which is the southeast corner of Lincoln High School.

Lincoln Police said the teen was walking home from an after-school activity when Watson pulled up next to her in a gray 4-door car with tinted windows. Police said Watson told the girl he "needed to talk" to her. The 13-year-old refused and kept walking.

Police say Watson then turned around and asked her again. The girl ran home and told an adult who called police.

"She had an excellent response to the situation," Lincoln Police officer Katie Flood said. "She told him 'no' then got away from the area as quickly as she could. Furthermore, she contacted police right away which is really critical to obtaining the best description possible and allowing officers to get into the area to look for the suspect."
