A man tried to lure a 12-year-old girl into his car in Ditmars on Wednesday, according to police.
The girl who was with her babysitter near Ditmars Ave and 49th Street was separated momentarily when a man in a light-colored car pulled alongside her at about 4:15 pm, police said.
The suspect asked the girl to get into his car but drove away when the babysitter approached, the police said.
The police released a picture of the man, who is balding, has facial hair and appears to have three scars on his right check.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS (8477).
