Police are concerned about a report of a man trying to lure children into his van.
Two 10-year-old boys were approached by the man on Landscape Rd in Mt Eden about 2pm on Saturday.
‘‘The two boys took appropriate action by not engaging with the male and running in the opposite direction,’’ Avondale police Detective Sergeant Rick Veacock says.
The Polynesian man, aged between 30 and 50, had short black hair, and a medium length black beard.
He was wearing a white or pink T-shirt and a blue and white stripped head band.
The van was grey or silver, with a dent in the driver’s door, and had tinted windows.
Any information call 820 5744.
