A second child luring incident has been reported in Moundsville, according to police.

Both incidents have reportedly happened within the last five days.

The most recent incident allegedly happened Monday at the Loading Zone on 4th Street.

Police say a mother and her child were out of their vehicle getting gas, when a man attempted to call the child over to the call, claiming he had a puppy.

Police believe this man is the same man they were searching for in connection with another incident on Saturday at the Dairy Queen on Route 2.

He is described as a black male driving a white Chevy Cavalier.

Authorities also say they’re reviewing surveillance video from both areas and have submitted warrants.

If you have any information, call the Moundsville Police at 304-845-1611.
