GLENVIEW, Ill. (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

Police have increased patrols and parents are being alerted after a man tried to lure teenage girls into his SUV twice in the last two weeks near a north suburban high school.

A 15-year-old girl told Glenview police she was walking south along Pfingsten Road about 6:45 p.m. on Sept. 17 when the driver of a black SUV yelled at her from the parking lot of Glenbrook South High School at 4000 W. Lake Ave., according to police.

When the driver asked the girl if she needed a ride, she said no and kept walking, a statement from police said. The SUV pulled up next to her again as she walked along the 3600 block of West Lake and asked again if she needed a ride, but the girl again said no.

The driver did a U-turn and pulled up next to her again, opening his passenger-side door and asking if she needed a ride, police said. The girl said no and the man drove off.

The driver was described as a 20-year-old Middle Eastern or Indian man, about 180 pounds with a muscular build and black hair. The SUV is described as a new, black, "smaller" four-door model.

On Wednesday night, another 15-year-old girl told police the driver of a black SUV called out to her from the parking lot of Jackman Park at 1930 Prairie St., police said.

The girl ignored the man, ran away and hid until the SUV left, police said.

The driver and vehicle matched the description of the previous incident, except the man was clean-shaven with shorter hair.

Sgt. Patrick Schuster said police have increased patrols in and around the areas where the incidents occurred.

"The safety and security of our students and staff is our top priority. To that end, students and staff were notified by email of the first incident on the 17th," Glenbrook South spokesperson Karen Geddeis said in a statement, adding a second email was scheduled to be sent Thursday about the second incident.

"Further, we will continue to work with local police to help ensure the safety of our school community," Geddeis said.

Glenview police are investigating and ask anyone with information to call Cmdr. Don Hohs at (847) 901-6035.
