UPPER DARBY TOWNSHIP, Pennsylvania (WPVI) -- Police say they're looking for a suspect approximately 55 years old in the Ardmore section of Haverford Township, Pennsylvania.

Last week, he allegedly drove around in his SUV trying to abduct an 8-year-old girl after school.

Police say last Wednesday the girl left school after dismissal from Cardinal Foley Elementary. She was walking home and the suspect reportedly pulled up to the girl right at the intersection of Overbrook Terrace and West Hathaway Lane.

According to police, he asked the girl if she needed a ride. That's when she ran right to a neighbor's house for help. The suspect then drove off.

Lisa Hermanovich lives right at the corner of the intersection.

She says since the luring incident, she's been much more cautious.

Hermanovich said, "My kids are grade school age 3rd and 5th grade. We changed up the afternoon routine today. Rather than come home I had them stay at school for practice. Just extra careful."

But unfortunately, it's not just there.

Police confirm two more recent cases of men approaching or trying to lure children in Delaware County.

Upper Darby police say two different incidents happened in the area of Township Line and Burmont Roads.

Police say the suspect wanted for the case in Ardmore was driving a light-colored, possibly white Lexus SUV.

Neighbor Stephanie Lint said, "It definitely rattles you. You don't want that to happen. We have two little kids."

In Upper Darby, one suspect was in a black sedan, the other was in a dark van with white pin stripes.

Anyone with any information is asked to call police immediately.
