Arrest made in luring incidents

Man charged after two incidents involving teenage girls

A Toronto man has been charged with attempting to lure two girls into a vehicle.

A 16-year-old girl was standing on the sidewalk at Coxwell Avenue and Gerrard Street on April 7 when a man drove up to the girl and tried to get her to enter his car, police say.

On April 12, a 13 year-old girl walking along Coxwell Avenue and Danforth Avenue also reported a man tried to convince her to get in the car with him. She ran to a nearby house where an adult notified police.

A man was arrested on April 15 in connection with the incidents.
