Two Heartland families are on edge; they say a man tried luring their girls into his truck.
Delanie and Lauren explained what happened to them recently. Both girls are 12 years-old. They say they were walking in their Council Bluffs neighborhood when they were confronted by a man in a truck. The girls say he told them to get in his truck. They ran and Council Bluffs police quickly made an arrest.
"Then to come to find out that he said that it was a big misunderstanding," said Mindy, Lauren's mom. "You know, his actions and the girls' actions, it was not a misunderstanding at all."
WOWT Six News reached out to Brian Peldo. He was arrested and charged for the incident.
Peldo is due back in court next week.
