A man in a black or dark-coloured car is cruising small villages near Hillerød in northern Zealand and attempting to convince children to get into his car.

On Monday, the man attempted to give a ride to a 14-year-old babysitter and the two younger girls she was walking with near Hillerød Lille Skole located in Ny Hammersholt near Hillerød. The older girl declined and the man took off.

Then on Wednesday morning, a man pulled up next to a 12-year-old girl and her younger brother at a bus stop in Lynge, another small town near Hillerød. 

The man held two cartons of chocolate milk out of the window of his car and offered them to the kids. The girl declined, and the driver again took off.

Maybe the same man
Police believe that the two cases may be connected.

“It may well be the same man,” Christian Have from north Zealand police in Hillerød told Hillerød Posten.

There is no description of the man in Lynge, but the driver in Ny Hammersholt was described as 25 to 35 years old with medium-length hair.
