Police are investigating several attempted child lurings in Bucks County that took place over the last two days.

Police say an unidentified man tried to lure two young girls on Croft Drive in Bedminster Township between 5:10 p.m. and 5:16 p.m. on Wednesday.

During both incidents, police say the suspect offered the girls candy to come inside his vehicle. Both girls ran away however.

The suspect is described as a white male between the ages of 40 and 50 with a brownish-red beard. Police also say he was driving a black, older model vehicle with dents and scratches.

Police are also investigating two other lurings in Solebury Township that occurred Tuesday and Wednesday night.

On Tuesday, police say an unidentified man driving a full-size white van with a ladder on top, approached several children in the North Pointe neighborhood of Solebury. The suspect, described as a 50-year-old man with grey hair, allegedly told the children he would give them a basketball if they came over to his van.

Police also say the same suspect, traveling in the same vehicle, was spotted in the Riverwoods community of New Hope, Pa. on Wednesday.

If you have any information on any of the suspects, please call the Bedminster Township Police Department at 215-795-2972 or the Solebury Township Police at 215-348-7400.
