LORAIN, Ohio - Lorain police are investigating two incidents of child enticement involving a man offering children candy.
The first incident happened at about 8:13 a.m. Tuesday at Fillmore and Massachusetts Avenue, while the child was waiting for the school bus, the police report said.
A mother told police that a man stopped his car and told her son to get into the vehicle to get some candy. When another car pulled into the area, the man drove off.
Later that day, the son pointed out a 2002 beige, four-door Ford Taurus and said it was the same car. The police report said the mother spotted a partial license plate of “FLE.”
Then, on Wednesday, a boy at the bus stop at McKinley and Euclid Avenue was approached by a man. Police reports said the man pulled up to the curb at about 8:20 p.m. and offered candy to the child.
When the boy refused, the suspect got out of the car. Police said the child ran away and hid until the man drove away.
Police reports said the boy told his grandmother that there was a black pistol on the dashboard of the car. The man had black hair and a red goatee. His car had brown, white and red patches on it.
Anyone with information should contact the Lorain Police Department.
