EASTON - Easton police are asking for the public’s help to find a man who approached two teenage boys as they were walking home on Thursday.

They said incident took place on Everett Road by Sherwood Road.

According to police, the man asked the boys if they would help him get something out of his eye. When the boys said no, police said the man made a rude gesture and told the boys "they would regret this."

Officials say the man did not try and lure them into a white van, which has red marks above the headlights and an American flag painted on the back.

They said they are looking for a white man possibly in his 40s about 6 feet tall, with long white hair and scruffy facial hair.

Police also said this is an isolated incident, but added they have increased the number of patrol officers in the area as a result of it.

Anyone with information is asked to call police.
