OSHKOSH, WI (WTAQ) - Police in Oshkosh need the public's help locating a man they say tried to get a child to hop in his car Friday afternoon.
Authorities say the child was dropped off by the bus in the area of Otter Avenue and Bowen Street. Shortly after, police say the child noticed a man driving an older green two-door vehicle with rust on the bottom.
Cops say the child told them the man waved and started a conversation. That's when police say the kid ran and the vehicle circled once again before the man asked if the child needed a ride.
The child then ran to a friend's house and the vehicle drove off.
Police say the child told them about the incident on Wednesday.
The suspect is described as a white man in his 40's. He was wearing a hat and has brown hair.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Oshkosh Police Department at (920) 236-5700.
