NEW MILFORD - Several New Jersey towns are imposing Halloween curfews in light of several reported child abduction attempts.


New Milford and Dumont have announced that trick-or-treating has to be wrapped up by 8 p.m. on Halloween, as well as the night before, which is known as "Mischief Night."


Oradell is imposing a 9 p.m. curfew, while Franklin Lakes is imposing a curfew of 10 p.m.


In River Edge, the town is enforcing a dusk curfew for anyone under age 18. After dusk, kids can trick-or-treat but only if accompanied by an adult 21 or older.


The curfews come after more than a dozen attempted child lurings in northern New Jersey.


Police have released four sketches, but so far, no arrests have been made.
