Police are alerting the public about two recent kidnap attempts in the Los Angeles area.

One kidnap attempt happened last Saturday in Venice near Lincoln Boulevard and Milwood Avenue. Another attempt happened last month as a teenage girl walked to school in Torrance. Officials say in both cases, he was driving a white or silver Honda sedan.

A suspect sketch has also been released. Police describe the suspect as a white male between 35-and 40-years old, 5 feet 10 inches tall and around 150 pounds.

Police plan to release more information Friday afternoon.
