Man who approached boys in restroom sought

AVON — Police are searching for a man who approached two young boys in a park bathroom in a sexual manner.
They believe the man, who is described as a white male in his 50s, is a sexual predator.
The man approached the two boys June 22 at Veterans Park off Detroit Road in the bathroom and told them he had something in his pocket to show them.
“The two boys took off out of the bathroom and ran to tell their parents, who called us immediately,” Avon police Sgt. Robert Olds said. “The kids definitely did the right thing by running to tell their parents.”
When police arrived, they could not find the man in the park, Olds said.
The suspect was about 6 feet tall, weighing 200 pounds, with grayish, balding hair and was last seen wearing a brown jacket, jeans and wire-rimmed glasses.
Police do not have any suspects and are asking residents with information to contact the police station at (440) 934-1234.
