NEW YORK (1010 WINS) – Four men inside a car tried to lure multiple children to come inside their vehicle, some with candy, on Saturday in Brooklyn, according to police.

At about 8:30 p.m on Saturday, Oct. 5, a blue Toyota Rav 4 with four men inside approached two boys, ages 10 and 11, at 47th Street and 18th Avenue in Borough Park.

The men told the boys something like “Come here boys. Come here,” say police.

The kids ran home.

About 20 minutes later the same day, the same car drove towards a girl 12, and a boy, 9, on 55th Street.

The men inside the car offered the children candy to come inside.

The two children also ran away.

The police are investigating the incident.

No suspects have been apprehended.
