Authorities in Trenton are seeking the person or persons responsible for several recent child endangerment incidents.

Officials said a man is wanted for acts of lewdness that occurred on multiple occasions in the areas of Cuyler Avenue, Gladstone Avenue and areas surrounding Hedgepeth-Williams Middle School in Trenton’s East Ward.

The suspect in the incident is described as a black man who stands approximately 6 feet tall and possibly has a Haitian or island accent.

Authorities said a man is also wanted for an attempted kidnapping that happened this month in the area of East Side Street and South Walter Avenue. The child was unharmed, police said.
