A 31-year-old barber from Hackensack was taken into custody after he tried luring a 13-year-old girl into his car, authorities said.

Luis Farias was arrested on June 4 after Hackensack police were told that he tried talking the girl into his vehicle "for the purpose of engaging the juvenile in a sexual act," Bergen County Prosecutor Mark Musella said.

A judge ordered Farias released on Monday, pending a first appearance on luring and child endangerment charges, following a detention hearing. He'd spent five days in the Bergen County Jail.

"Mr. Farias has been a law-abiding business owner in the community for over 10 years," defense attorney Adam Lustberg said. "We look forward to addressing this allegation in a court of law."
