OSHKOSH, Wis. -- Police in Oshkosh say a man tried to lure three children into a car over the weekend.
The incident happened Saturday afternoon around 5:00 in the 1000 block of Weisbrod Street. According to a news release, the children were playing in the front yard of a house when the man, driving a maroon colored 90's model Chevy Beretta, stopped and talked with them.
He reportedly told the kids to get in the car and he would take them to 'grandma's house'. The children's mother noticed the car outside. When she went to see what the driver wanted, he drove away, turning onto West 10th Avenue.
Police say the driver is described as older, heavy set with a bald spot on top of his head and gray or brown long hair on the sides.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Oshkosh Police Department at 920-236-5700.
