A 65-year-old New Jersey man is accused of attempting to lure children to his car and exposing himself to women, prosecutors say.

Police had been looking for the suspect after several attempted lurings were reported in Bergen County towns in recent weeks.

Prosecutors say the suspect made sexually explicit comments on Tuesday to an adult in Palisades Park who took down his license plate number. After police located him, authorities noted that he resembled the composite sketch of a suspect who tried to lure two Leonia girls to his car last month.

He is charged with those lurings as well as other occasions of making sexually explicit comments to women. In one of those cases, he allegedly exposed himself to a woman.

The suspect is charged with four counts of luring, three counts of endangering the welfare of a child, three counts of harassment and one count of lewdness.
