Pueblo police have identified a man in newly released surveillance photos. Police say he turned himself in for questioning Friday and he is cooperating with investigators.

Two teen girls, one 13 and one 18, were targeted earlier this week in Pueblo in a similar fashion, by a similar suspect. Both girls reported a 30-something Hispanic man in a truck driving up to their yards and trying to grab them. Click here and here to read about those cases.

Police are now looking back at older luring cases to see if there are any connections to the ones this week.

In one older case, the suspect allegedly followed a girl around the Family Dollar Tree on Troy Avenue in Pueblo, trying to get her to get in his vehicle. Surveillance footage of the alleged suspect indicates that the suspect might be Hispanic. 11 News is trying to reach police for an exact date of this luring attempt.

Police are also looking for a blue S-10 style truck with "GAMBLER" written on the tailgate. This truck is from another reported luring attempt by a Hispanic man in Pueblo County. No further information about that incident has been released.

If you have any information about the man in the surveillance footage or the truck described here, call police at 719-542-STOP or Crime Stoppers at 634-STOP.
