Authorities have accused a New Jersey man with trying to lure a dozen girls into his car over two months in Bergen County.

Authorities say 26-year-old Shahan Achian would offer the children money for sex.

Prosecutor John Molinelli says the first incident occurred on Oct. 16 in Montvale when a man in a black vehicle pulled up near a middle school and offered three girls cash for sex.

Similar incidents were reported in Glen Rock, Ho-Ho-Kus, Ridgewood and Allendale.

All the girls walked away and told their parents or teachers, who called police.

The Upper Saddle River resident is held on $200,000 bail, charged with multiple counts of luring and child endangerment.
