PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — Police in Upper Moreland Township are searching for a man they say tried to lure two young girls into his car by offering them a “free Uber ride.”

The girls were walking along York Road near Summit Avenue around 5 p.m. on Tuesday, when the driver of a white Toyota Prius with tinted windows pulled up next to them, according to police.

Authorities said the driver tried to persuade the girls to get into his car for a free Uber ride. They said the man was so persistent to get them in his car that traffic began to back up on York Road. He eventually drove away.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Upper Moreland Township Police Department at 215-657-4700.
