Police are searching for a man in a dark-colored Mercedes-Benz who offered an 11-year-old girl walking along a Roosevelt street Sunday money to "help him out."

Nassau County police said a witness, who saw the incident from an apartment window, yelled to the driver that she was calling the police - and, police said, the driver then immediately fled the scene.

The incident took place on Nassau Road at 5:03 p.m.

The girl was unharmed.

Police said the driver has been described as a man in his 70s, clean shaved, and wearing a light-colored shirt with dark-colored suspenders. The car was an older model four-door Mercedes, police said.

Just last week, police investigated a similar incident in Roosevelt - when a man tried to abduct an elementary school student as she walked to school Thursday. Police said the girl was walking at about 7:30 a.m. on the corner of Washington Avenue and Rose Avenue when a black Nissan Altima pulled up and someone in it asked her to get into the car.

The location is about two blocks from Washington Rose Elementary School. The girl ran toward school grounds and the car drove off, police said.

Police said the girl appeared to be walking alone when the car approached her.

Police are asking anyone with information about the incidents to contact Crime Stoppers at 800-244-TIPS or the First Squad at 516-573-6356.

All calls will remain confidential, police said.
