A man in his 20s with a fake police badge allegedly approached at least two girls outside Lawrence Middle School in Chatsworth telling one of the girls he needed to place a tracking device "in her bra," according to a safety alert issued Tuesday night by the LAPD's Devonshire Division. In one incident the suspect threatened to arrest the girl, in another he offered money for her cooperation, according to the alert.

The man is described as a male Hispanic or Asian, 20-22 years old, 5’4” - 5’5” with short brown hair & brown eyes. Any information regarding this suspect should be forwarded to LAPD-Devonshire Detectives at 818.832.0609.

Both incidents occurred after May 23.
