PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Police have made an arrest in connection to multiple child lurings that were reported in Northeast Philadelphia last week.

Police are withholding the suspect’s photo due to an ongoing investigation of other cases in the area.

According to police, the first incident occurred last Tuesday on the 400 block of Tomlinson Road around 3 p.m. when children told police they were approached by a Hispanic man in a black vehicle. They say the man offered them cash to get into the car and that’s when they ran away. The car the suspect was driving was a black SUV with damage to the front bumper, broken headlight, tinted windows, with one black wheel and three silver wheels.

Deeb is also accused of an attempted luring on Friday on the 4900 block of Ditman Street. Police say a man pulled up next to a 10-year-old girl, showed her money and asked if he could take her photo. She ran to school and told an adult what happened. The suspect in that incident is described as a Hispanic man with black hair, a beard, wearing a black shirt, driving a black car with black-tinted windows.

Ten minutes after that, around 8:10 a.m. on the 5300 block of Jackson Street, a 10-year-old girl reported an identical encounter.

Three other attempted lurings were also reported in Northeast Philadelphia last week. Police have not charged Deeb in those crimes.
