New York Post/Kaili McDonnough

Fear had descended over a TriBeCa park as reports of a suspected predator approaching childrenhas led panicked parents to appeal for better security. Twice in the past two months, nannieswatching their charges at Washington Market Park have noticed a suspicious man talking to smallchildren and trying to get them to play tag with him. In both cases the man was chased away by thenanny before anything happened. On May 9, the man, described as white, in his 20s, wearing abaseball cap and jeans, approached a 5 year old boy and tried to convince him to run out of thepark. The man reappeared at the park last week, and this time approached a 7 year old girl.
