Winfield police are on the lookout for a man who tried to lure a boy into his car Tuesday afternoon by offering him candy.
Police said a man in a vehicle offered the 9-year-old boy candy and told him he wanted to talk to him about 4:30 or 5 p.m. Tuesday. The man then followed the boy for a short time, according to police.
The driver, described as a white man of an unknown age, had a black mustache and a black goatee and was wearing an orange hat. He also was wearing a long-sleeved black jacket and had a black star tattoo on his right forearm.
The vehicle is described as a black, boxy GM vehicle similar to a Cadillac. The vehicle is older, has a number of dents on it and scratched-up tires, and the rear window has a baseball-sized hole in it, according to police.
On Thursday, someone spotted a man and a vehicle matching the boy's description around the same area, except the man was not wearing a hat. No further details about the location were available.
