State police are investigating after receiving multiple reports of a man attempting to lure children into a vehicle in Dunkard Township Monday afternoon.

Trooper Robert Cree said the reports were received around 4 p.m. near the intersection of Main and Duff streets.

Cree said that the man attempted to lure young children into his van on two separate occasions. In one instance, Cree said the man asked a child to get into his vehicle and show him where an address was. A second child reported that the man simply asked if the child needed a ride.

Cree said the suspect was described as a white man, about 50 years old, with salt and pepper hair and glasses.

He was driving a white Dodge van, Cree noted.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 724-627-6151.
