PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — Police are in contact with a man in connection with a series of attempted lurings in Northeast Philadelphia over the last week.

They said the incidents happened on November 13-15.

On Wednesday morning, authorities explained, a man in black clothing walked up to a woman on the 4600 block of Cottman Ave. and exposed himself to her, while asking her if she wanted to make $100 dollars. He ran off when she called police.

The second incident happened on Thursday afternoon. According to police, a man in a white car, on the 7300 block of Frankford Ave., asked a woman if she wanted to make money before getting out of his car, yelling he was a police officer and had a gun.

The third luring attempt happened Friday morning, when a man in a cream-colored car on the 3200 block of Ryan Ave., asked another woman if she wanted to make money, before getting out of his car. That woman fled.
Police said the man was identified and in contact with Special Victims Unit investigators. His identity has not been released at this time.
