Police: 4 men tried to lure children into car at Borough ParkPosted: Updated:
Police say four men tried to lure several children into a car in Borough Park over the weekend.
Police say two separate incidents happened less than an hour apart and blocks away from each other.
Police say the first incident happened on Saturday at the corner of 47th Street and 18th Avenue around 8:30 p.m. In a video released by police, an SUV pulls up to the curb where two boys are standing on a sidewalk. The boys started to back away from the car, then several passengers in the SUV started to get out.
This prompted the boys to run. The boys say the men asked them to "come here."
Twenty-minutes later, police received reports of another incident about a half-mile away. Police say a 12-year-old girl and a 9-year-old boy were approached on 55th Street.
Investigators say that the vehicle is an older dark blue Toyota RAV4. Anyone who recognizes the SUV is asked to call authorities.
Police have not made any arrests yet.
