    A New Jersey community is being alerted to a predator approaching women on the street.

    Glen Rock, N.J. mayor John Van Keuren has recorded a message that went out in a reverse 911 call to residents, warning them to watch out for a man police say has been pulling up beside women on the street, asking for directions and then making lewd comments.

    In one case, the man targeted a 14-year-old girl, police said.

    Even though the incidents did not escalate into any physical assault or even any threat of that, the town's police chief still wants everyone to be cautious.

    "It's just a precaution," said Chief Fred Stahmann. "You don't get this in Glen Rock normally."

    Since there is so little info about the man police are looking for, they're asking anybody who might come into contact with him in the future to get as much as they can especially about his car.
