    A police sketch of a suspect wanted for three attempted child abductions in Bergen County, NJ.

    Authorities are investigating another attempted child abduction in New Jersey Friday night, the fourth in Bergen County in the last two weeks.
       
    It happened in Hawthorne at the Rec field on Wageraw road, police said.
       
    It is not clear whether this attempt was related to the three other recent abduction attempts, which took place in Hackensack, Maywood and Oradell. Police have linked those three cases and believe the same man may be behind them.

    On Friday, authorities said a man approached a boy in Hackensack, asked him for directions and then tried to get the boy inside his car.

    On Thursday, a man approached a 7-year-old girl in Oradell, and a week ago, police say he pulled up next to a girl in Maywood and asked her if she wanted to see his puppies.

    Police have released a sketch of the suspect in the first three incidents.
