Officials in one South Jersey neighborhood are asking residents to be on the lookout after an older male allegedly tried to pick up a little girl in his vehicle on Sunday.

The girl was riding her bike along the 200 block of Addison Avenue in the Westmont section of Haddon Township in Camden County when the man allegedly drove up to her in a sedan and told her that her parents sent him to pick her up and bring her home, Haddon Township police said in a statement.

The girl declined and rode away.

Police have released a composite sketch of the suspect, who is described as being in his late 30s to early 40s with dark hair, no facial hair and "thin, silver-framed, low-profile, corrective-vision glasses." The man was wearing an orange, short-sleeved collared shirt and a silver ring on his left finger during the time of the alleged incident, according to police.
