Man in bunny suit tries to lure girl into van

GRAND FORKS, N.D. – A man wearing a bunny suit tried to lure an 8-year-old North Dakota girl into a van on Thursday, authorities said.

"She just came in and said, 'Mama, there's this creepy guy in a bunny suit and he just approached me and asked me to get in his van,'" Rhonda Petty said.

"'(She said he was) 'In a fluffy-white-bunny suit, with ears like a headband. (He) asked me to come over to his van and pet his live bunny.' She said no, and came home and got me."

Petty said her 8-year-old daughter was close enough to see a live rabbit in the back seat.

Police were called and canvassed apartments on North 43rd Street, but found nothing. However, Petty said she saw the van come back after dark.

"I saw him going right, and that's when I called the police again," Petty said.
