An Omaha man awaiting trial on two counts of child enticement was arrested Monday on suspicion of committing the same offense following an incident near 156th and Pacific Streets. 

The 28-year-old man is alleged to have coaxed a boy to approach his vehicle about 2:10 p.m. near Cottonwood Elementary School. The juvenile told police that he ran home after the man exposed his genitals. 

The boy's father was able to follow the man's car, a police spokesman said Tuesday. Detectives with the child victim/sexual assault unit recognized similarities to previous incidents involving the vehicle. 

Investigators went to the man's home and arrested him on suspicion of child enticement, lewd conduct and debauching a minor. Detectives are continuing to investigate the man's activities, the spokesman said. 

An affidavit filed in Douglas County Court alleges the same man parked a vehicle near 84th and Decatur Streets on March 30 and coaxed two 7-year-old girls to come to his car window. The girls said the man complimented them and asked if they wanted to go for a ride. 

He also asked to take pictures of them and did so as the girls walked away.

Child enticement is a felony punishable by up to three years in prison.
