Police in New Milford have received another report of an attempted child luring. It's the latest in nearly a dozen similar incidents in the area since mid-September.

Police Chief Frank Papapietro says a 12-year-old girl reported Saturday that a man tried to lure her while she waited in the car for her mother.

Papapietro tells The Record it's the fourth luring attempt reported in the borough since Thursday.

Attempts have also been reported in Westwood, Hawthorne, Maywood, Fair Lawn, Fairview, Oradell, Ridgewood, Washington Township and Hackensack in recent weeks.

No children have been reported abducted and police are unsure if the incidents are related. They released a sketch of a man in the Westwood incident who resembles a man in the Washington Township case.
