Police are on the lookout for a man who allegedly attempted to lure two Main Line children into his van.

The incident occurred last week when two children in Tredyffrin Township were approached by a man while they were playing on a residential lawn in the late afternoon of March 26, police announced today.

The man, who is described as between 40 and 50 years of age, having a tan complexion, dark hair and light colored eyes, called to one of the children and asked him to get into the minivan he was driving. He spoke with an accent the children told police.

The van was possibly a light blue Honda Odyssey with a white license plate that had red letters. Sun curtains were mounted on the side windows of the minivan, police said.

Police are asking anyone with information to contact contact Detective James Konieczny at (610) 408-3647 or jkonieczny@tredyffrin.org.
