On Monday, a woman from a different apartment complex told police she was approached by three men after pulling into her parking lot and getting out of her vehicle. She told police the men grabbed her and attempted to force her into their vehicle. That vehicle also was described as a white Lincoln Town Car.

And Tuesday, a woman told police she was followed by a white Lincoln Town Car in the Tates Creek Road area.
