Man tries to lure kids into woods

PARMA, OH (WOIO) - Parma Police continue to investigate an attempted luring at John Muir Elementary School on West 24th Street that was reported last week.

According to Detective Marty Compton, two girls ages 9 and 10 reported to officials that a male approached them at the school's playground and said he knew a good place to hide in the woods where nobody could steal them.

The girls ran home to their parents, who then called cops.

Officers toured the area and came up empty.

Parents are being asked to keep their eyes peeled in the area.
