The Berkeley Police Department has asked the community for help with two ongoing investigations underway by its Special Victims Unit.
Investigators are trying to find the victim in one case and the location in another.
On June 10, Berkeley police say a male driver in a blue Honda Element pulled up alongside a girl walking alone on Eunice Street near Codornices Park at about 11:50 a.m.
The man tried to engage the girl in conversation but was interrupted, BPD said.
"A concerned citizen observed the interaction, approached the juvenile, and the adult suspect immediately drove away," the Berkeley Police Department said in a recent community alert.

Berkeley police ask anyone with information about this incident (Case #2023-00028042) to call the Special Victims Unit at 510-981-5728.
Do you know this home? A peeper may have been there
The Berkeley Police Department is investigating a series of "peeping" crimes in the neighborhoods north and south of UC Berkeley.
Police have made an arrest in the case but are now hoping for help with part of the investigation.
Detectives are attempting to identify the location depicted in a photograph that may be related to one of the crimes: "Note the chain link fence, gate, and building support pillars," police said in a recent community alert.
Police ask anyone who recognizes the location to call the Special Victims Unit at 510-981-5717, case #2023-00016926.
