He attempted to speak to them. Being afraid, the females ran to a house on Old Philadelphia Pike where the homeowner waited with them until the parents arrived.

During this time, Police say the homeowner watched the man drive slowly through the area and described the action as appearing to be looking for the females.

The man is described as a white male between 40 and 50 years old with short black hair, a full black beard, and a baggy shirt.
