GRESHAM, Ore. (KOIN) — Gresham police are looking for a man who tried to lure girls three separate times in recent days.

Police think the same suspect tried to grab a different girl last week on Northeast Roberts Avenue. She reported that a man matching the same description tried to get her into his car a few months ago.

Each time the victim escaped.

The suspect is described as a black man in his late 30s to early 40s, standing around 6-feet tall and weighing 200 pounds with a goatee, glasses, decayed teeth and yellowish eyes. He was driving a tan or gold car.

KOIN 6 News will have more information later.
