On Saturday, Oct. 30, a vehicle drove past the 13-year-old girl on Pitney Lane . The girl said the vehicle slowed down and the driver asked her, "Are you cold? I can give you a ride. Get in my car."

The teen, who used her cell phone to record the vehicle, ran to the nearest house. The driver drove off, headed towards East Veterans Highway.

Rosales-Flores was charged with second-degree luring and taken to Ocean County Jail.
