SYLMAR, Calif. — Police were warning parents to keep an eye out for a man who has approached at least three young girls this month in the vicinity of Dronfield Avenue and Tyler Street.
The man, believed to be in his early 20’s, approached young girls, one as young as 12, on three occasions since May 3.
The incidents all occurred in the afternoon after school let out.
Witnesses say the man was driving a black 1995 Toyota Camry with a partial license plate ending in 880.
In each case, the man circles the block looking for victims, then calls out to them from the car or approaches them on the sidewalk.
None of the girls was touched by the man.
Detectives did not believe this is the same man who has been described in separate attempted kidnapping incidents in the Tujunga area over the weekend.
