NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Police are looking for two men who tried to lure young girls into a van near a New Jersey elementary school on Tuesday and Wednesday, officials said.

In the last case, the men were driving around in a dark minivan with tinted windows and tried to lure the pre-teen girls as they were walking home from Gilbert Avenue Elementary School in Elmwood Park, 1010 WINS' Roger Stern reported.

"You're are beautiful," one of the men yelled. "Do you want me to drop you off."

Luckily, both girls ran off.

The Elmwood Police Chief encourages kids to be with a buddy at all times, and if they have a cell phone, to keep it out at all times.
