This man is being hunted after approaching several young children in Ashford and telling them to get in his white van.
He started talking to an eight-year-old boy, two eight-year-old girls and a group of children to lure them into his vehicle in three separate incidents.
All the children refused to get inside and ran off to tell an adult. None have been touched or harmed.
Now police have released two efits of a suspect they want to trace.
Detectives are linking two incidents in Bybrook Road and Beecholme Drive between 4.45pm and 6.40pm on Tuesday, April 29.
They are also linking these to another incident in Manor House Drive, in Kingsnorth, at about 4.30pm on Thursday, May 8.
DS Andrew Bidmead said: "We've made a number of enquiries and are following a number of leads and would like to hear from anyone who may be able to identify the man in the efit images.
"Fortunately children are taught about the 'stranger danger' and how to stay safe and have reacted very sensibly to these incidents by saying 'No' and running to tell an adult they can trust."
Anyone who can identify the suspect from the images or has any information is asked to phone DS Bidmead or DC Gemma Crouch on 101 or 01303 289413.
