Police are telling parents and schools to be extra vigilant after three reports of girls being approached by a man in Nottingham over the last two days.
It's happened twice in Carlton and once in Bulwell.
On Monday, a man asked a 14-year-old girl to get into his car on Foxhill Road, Carlton between 2.30pm and 5pm.
The man grabbed the teenager's arm but she broke free and ran away.
Police think that incident could also be linked to one at Bulwell golf course, again on Monday, at about 3.40pm.
The man grabbed the bag of a 14-year-old girl and told hr to 'Come here', she also wrestled free and ran away.
Yesterday morning in Standhill Road, Carlton at around 8.30am, a man called over to an 11-year-old and asked her to get into his car. She ran away and told her school.
In every report the man was described as black, aged 20-40, wearing dark clothing and in a dark-coloured car.
