MENTOR -- Police are looking for a man who is accused of twice trying to lure children into his late 90's dark green/black or tan sedan with faded paint, rust and damage.

The incidents happened today and on Saturday.

Just before 7 a.m. today, police were called to the area of Ellington Place for a complaint of a white man in a dark-colored car asking several juveniles if they could help him find his dog.

The juveniles refused to help the man and he left the area.

He was driving a late 90's dark green or black sedan with faded paint, rust and damage.

Saturday:  White man, gray hair, 55-60 years old. He was driving a tan-colored car which was rusted and damaged.

Witnesses were unable to obtain a license plate in either incident and the man never got out of the vehicle either time.

No children ever entered the vehicle.
