NEW YORK (WABC) -- The NYPD is looking for a child predator in Queens and have released a sketch and surveillance photo of the suspect.
Police say the man has tried to lure at least two teenagers.
A 14-year-old girl says he followed her in a Cadillac Escalade as she was walking in Flushing Friday night.
She was able to run away.
A 13-year-old girl reported a similar incident in Jackson Heights Friday morning. She told police the suspect engaged her in a conversation and, after realizing she did not know him, she walked away from the vehicle.
Police say he then exited his vehicle, approached her once again as she walked away and grabbed her by arm. The victim pulled away from him and ran.
The suspect is described as a Hispanic male, approximately 30 to 35 years old, 5-foot-7 to 5-foot-9 and weighing about 170 pounds.
