Marco police indentify 2 men who approached, tried to lure children at intersection

Published: Updated:

Police have identified the two men on Thursday afternoon who two girls say approached them and tried to lure them into a vehicle on Marco Island Wednesday night.

They say there is no threat to the public and are grateful for the community’s help.

The incident occurred around 8 p.m. on San Marco Road, between Cushing Lane and Templewood Court.

Thursday afternoon, police released photos of a pickup truck and two people they’d like to speak with but have now said how they are connected to this case.

Neighbors say with a school, a YMCA and a park there are always children in this area.

A parent says two young men (in their late teens or early 20s) in a white pickup truck drove up to two girls riding their bikes far ahead of their brother.
