ELIZABETH, N.J. — Police are circulating a composite sketch of a man suspected of trying to lure girls in Union County.

Authorities say at least three incidents took place last week in Roselle. The girls, who range in age from 12 to 16, all reported the man asked if they wanted a ride or physically grabbed them. Each managed to flee while the suspect drove away. The incidents occurred near Abraham Clark High School and the Leonard Moore Middle School.

Three girls in Kenilworth and Linden reported similar incidents last week.

Police want to question the man.
