LAS VEGAS — Las Vegas police have released a sketch of man suspected of trying to steal two girls.

The Las Vegas Sun reports police released the sketch Tuesday as they continue to search for the suspect described as a white or Hispanic medium-build man between 18 to 20 years old.

Police say he has a tattoo on the right side of his neck.

Last week, they released a video showing the man riding in a four-door with silver trim round the windows.

Police say the man tried to get a 6-year-old girl into his car, but let her go when neighbors confronted him.

Less than 10 minutes, police say the man was seen with a 10-year-old girl at a playground, but was thwarted by a family member of the child.
