A short time later on Tuesday, the suspect allegedly asked another student their name and age near Dr. Martin Luther King Drive and Albert Street. They pulled out a cell phone and the suspect drove away.

On Wednesday morning, the suspect approached another student near 12th and Harbridge Avenue and asked if he could drive the student to school. The child met up with a group of other students and the suspect drove off again.

The man in all three of the incidents is described in the incidents is a black male, between 25 and 35 years-old, with an average thin build, a medium to light complexion with short hair and a full beard.

He was driving a black sedan with some rust on the car with a possibly crooked license plate.
