Suspicious man tries luring girls into vehicle

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Olean Police are looking into reports that a suspicious man has tried to lure girls into his vehicle.

Police say the suspect, described as a balding white man in his mid- to late-30s, asks the girls if they know of a good place to eat, and then asks them to get into a car, described as a red or maroon SUV. The vehicle may have temporary plates from Ohio.

At least five incidents have taken place since Monday. The man approaches the girls near the high school and around 14th and 15th Streets and may have followed at least one. Two of the girls were in their early 20s while three were high schoolers.
