Stranger danger: Attempted luring in New Jersey

    A male motorist attempted to lure two young girls into his van in Gloucester Township.

    According to, two girls ages 6 and 9, were on the porch of a Sicklerville, New Jersey home, in the Mayfair Woods development when an older white man with thinning grey hair asked the girls to approach him.

    The man was wearing a red shirt and driving a red van with dark windows.

    The girls went into the home and notified a parent who then called police.
