Pierce County man accused of luring young children

A Pierce County man is accused of trying to lure children to his home while they were playing outside Friday.

Patrick David Huber, 59, was charged Monday with two counts of luring in connection with the incident near Lakewood, according to the Pierce County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office. Huber allegedly approached two boys and a girl Friday and told them to walk toward him or come with him to his house.

According to the prosecuting attorney’s office, Huber approached a 13-year-old boy outside Woodbrook Middle School and told him to “come here.” The teen ran and told staff members, who called police.

Huber then approached a 4-year-old boy and his 9-year-old sister in the play area of their apartment complex, and told them “come with me to my house,” according to the prosecuting attorney’s office. The siblings refused to leave with Huber and their mother called 911.

Officers found Huber at his apartment, where he allegedly told officers he fantasized about “beautiful little girls,” according to the prosecuting attorney’s office.

Huber remains in custody in lieu of $300,000 bail.

The incident was near where Andre’Anna Jackson, 10, was reported missing in December 2005. The girl’s skeletal remains were found in a vacant lot near Woodbrook about four months later.
