Philadelphia police have issued a warning about a woman trying to lure children in Torresdale.

Two instances have been reported in the past two weeks. Each one occurred near the 3500 block of Academy Road.

In each case, a woman driving a red car asked children to let her drive them home as they walked home from schools in the area.

The kids refused in both instances and told their parents who then called police.

The driver is described as a white woman with dark or short hair.
