The Canadian Press | posted Thursday, Mar 9th, 2017

Police are warning the public after a pair of reported incidents involving children in east-end Toronto.

The first happened in the afternoon on February 10th, when police allege a man in a vehicle approached two nine-year-old boys in the Burrows Hall Boulevard and Purvis Crescent area and asked them to get into his car.

Police say the boys ran away and the vehicle drove off.

The second incident happened in the same neighbourhood Tuesday afternoon, when police allege a man in a vehicle approached two 10-year-old boys and a five-year-old girl.

Police say the children said no, but the man persisted and the children ran off.

They’re describing the suspect as between the ages of 35 and 45, with a “brown complexion” and reading glasses. He may have been wearing a Blue Jays shirt and a Blue Jays baseball cap in one of the incidents.

The vehicle is described as a charcoal or silver four-door sedan. In the second incident the vehicle was described as a small, silver, four-door vehicle.
