NYPD: Man sought in attempted luring of 5- and 7-year-old boys in Manhattan Beach
Police are searching for a man who they say tried to lure two boys into his car Saturday afternoon in Manhattan Beach.
Detectives have released a video of that person caught in the act in the hopes that someone will be able to recognize him or his car.
Police say a man in the red car approached the 5- and 7-year-old boys near the corner of Shore Boulevard and Norfolk Street and tried to entice them to get into his car by offering them candy around 2:30 p.m.
They say children's father was nearby, saw what was happening and came out to confront the man before the suspect just drove off.
No one was injured.
Investigators are asking anyone with information about that car or the person seen in the video to call the Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
