Franklin police want to find out more about a man who suspiciously approached two children on Monday in the city, possibly using a dog as a lure.
In a press release issued today, police say they are investigating a report that a man - described as white, 50 to 60 years old, with gray balding hair - driving a white midsized vehicle stopped at an intersection of West Imperial Drive and 83rd Street, where the children were standing at about 7:30 p.m.
On the front seat of his vehicle sat a dog, possibly a yellow Labrador. The man asked the children "Do you want to pet my dog?", according to the police report. When the children declined, the man drove off.
Police are asking anyone with information, or reports of similar incidents, to call the Franklin Police Department at (414) 425-2522.
Police are also reminding parents about the value of monitoring the outdoor activities as a precautionary measure at all times.
