Napa Police are investigating multiple reports of a man driving a newer four-door silver sedan approaching children in Browns Valley. 

On Friday, two female children were on the swings at Century Oaks Park when a white male about 30 years old walked by and motioned to the children to walk toward him, police said Monday.

The children ran home and notified their parents, police said.

Later in the day Friday, a man matching the description of the man in the earlier incident drove by two female teenagers in the vicinity of Dartmouth and Broadmoor drives and said, "Get in the car," police said.

In a posting on Nextdoor, the online social network, the mother of one of the teens said her daughter ran and hid on a porch on Harvard Lane, then called her mother who summoned police.

Children need to be more aware of their surroundings, the mom advised her neighbors.

Police said the case is under investigation
