PROSPECT-LEFFERTS GARDENS - A Brooklyn father is raising awareness after he says his child was the target of an attempted luring.

Pierre Verna says his 12-year-old daughter was walking from an after-school activity at around 7:30 p.m. on June 5 near Rogers Avenue and Lincoln Road when a man in a vehicle motioned toward her. His daughter thought that she had dropped something, but she says the man tried to get her into his vehicle when she went back to look.
