WEST NYACK - Police are looking for a man they say has tried to lure young boys into his car on two separate occasions.

Clarkstown police say a man approached two boys as they rode scooters on Phillips Lane in West Nyack last week, but the incident was only reported to them Wednesday. A mother told authorities a man in a white BMW stopped and questioned her 9-year-old son and his 10-year-old friend.

Police say the luring incident was very similar to one that happened Monday along Marycrest Road in West Nyack, when a suspect with the same description tried to lure a 5-year-old boy into his car.
