YARDLEY, Pa. (WPVI) -- Police are looking for a suspect in the attempted luring of two boys in Yardley, Pa.

The incident happened between 4:30 p.m. and 4:45 p.m. on Monday, July 17 in the area of the Saint Andrew's Church parking lot on West Afton Avenue adjacent to Lake Afton.

According to police, two boys fishing at the lake said a man parked his car in the lot and got out. A boy, approximately 10 years old, also emerged from the car, police say.

The suspect is described as a black male, about 40 to 50 years old. The boy with him was also described as a black male.

The car was described as a black four-door sedan of an unknown make and model.
