    Police in New Hampshire say there have been multiple incidents this week of a suspicious person or persons attempting to lure children into a vehicle.

    Manchester police say the first attempt was on March 23 on Lowell Street when the male suspect, described as in his 30s with a red/brown beard, yellow teeth and wearing a black coat, asked the victim if he wanted a ride. Police say the car was described as a green four-door sedan with new tires and shiny rims.

    The second reported attempt was on March 24 on Eastern Avenue, when a male suspect, described to police as skinny with brown hair and wearing a baseball hat with glasses, allegedly asked the victims, "Hey ladies, what school do you go to?" and then yelled at the victims to "get in the car" as they ran away. The suspect's vehicle was described in this incident as a blue SUV with Rhode Island plates, police said.

    The third reported attempt happened on March 26 at Auburn and Lincoln streets. Police say the suspect, described in this case as a skinny male with medium brown hair wearing an orange t-shirt, but didn't have glasses, an accent or tattoos, asked the victim if he wanted a ride. The suspect's vehicle was described as a silver four-door vehicle.

    All of the incidents happened between 3-4 p.m., and the victims, ages 9-14, were both male and females, according to police.
