Deputies are looking for a man who has been spotted approaching young boys at a Beaverton park.
The first report was filed on July 24 regarding a stranger talking to children at Somerset Meadows Park. A woman called police to report a white man in his 20s with dirty blond hair and braces approaching boys in the park.
The woman said her son was on a swing when the man asked the boy if he had ever jumped off the swing. The boy said he was then asked if he was alone at the park or if his mom was there.
The child ignored the man, got off the swing and walked toward his mom. The woman told investigators the man then asked two other kids what game they were playing before realizing parents had noticed him. He then walked away from the park.
Deputies took a similar report from another mother who witnessed a man with the same description talking to boys on two separate days this week.
Tualatin Hills Parks and Recreation officials have been notified and deputies who patrol the area have been put on alert to be on the lookout for this man, according to the Washington County Sheriff's Office.
The first report described the man's braces as being green in color. He was also wearing a Transformers shirt and hat, along with DC shoes.
Investigators want to hear from this man or anyone who might have information about him. Deputies also ask anyone who experiences something suspicious like this to call police right away so they can respond immediately and possibly make contact with the person in question.
