Cops are asking for the public's help to identify a man who tried to abduct three teen girls in University Heights.  The man grabbed a 15 year old girl at University Avenue near 179th Street at 9:30 a.m. on March 7, but the girl managed to pull away and the man fled.  Hours later, the suspect, driving a dark four-door sedan, pulled up to another 15 year old girl near Andrews Avenue.  That girl ran into a nearby building after he asked her to get in the car.  Two days later, the man tried to lure a 13 year old girl into his car on University Avenue, a block from where he grabbed the first victim.  When the girl did not respond to his request for directions he got out of the car and followed her.  She ran, boarded a city bus and escaped unharmed.  The would-be kidnapper is described as a black man age 30 to 35, 5 foot 11 and 210 pounds.
