DUMFRIES, Va. - Prince William County Police are asking for the public's help in tracking down a man who apparently tried to lure two Graham Park Middle School students into his van Monday morning in Dumfries.

Police spokesman Jonathan Perok says the two girls were standing at different school bus stops. One incident took place at Main and Graham Streets, the other at Main Street and Mind Road. The two separate incidents happened about 10 minutes apart, between 7:35 a.m. and 7:45 a.m.

Perok says both girls were approached by a black male in his 30s with a thin mustache and in a late model silver van. The suspect rolled down his window and asked if they wanted a ride. Both girls refused and the man drove away. Neither girl was hurt in the incidents.

Police says they will be monitoring the area. Anyone with any information is being urged to call Prince William County Crime Solves at 703-670-3700 or 1-866-411-TIPS.
