GREENFIELD — Greenfield police are looking for a man they say attempted to abduct two children and then exposed himself at an apartment complex Monday afternoon.
GPD Detective Nichole Gilbert said two 11-year-old girls were playing on a playground at Prairie Meadows Apartments, which is on U.S. 40 west of Meridian Road, when a man parked across the opening of the playground.
The man exited his vehicle and was fanning a large amount of money out to the girls, Gilbert said.
“It’s our belief he was trying to entice them to come over to his vehicle,” she said. “He did not speak to them. He stood there for a few minutes, and when the children didn’t approach him, he put the money in the car and that’s when he walked up to the playground. That’s when he exposed himself to the girls.”
