Police are searching for a white man with a silver tooth after two girls under 10 reported he approached them and said, "Come with me," after they got off their school bus in Carlington on Monday afternoon.

The man picked one of the girls up but put her back down after the other girl challenged him between 2:30 p.m. and 2:50 p.m. in the area of Cavan Street and Lepage Avenue, police said in a news release. The girls left and told their parents what happened.

The man is described as five-foot-10-inches tall with a thin build, short hair and a full brown beard. He had "dirty teeth and a silver tooth on the bottom row" and a tattoo on his wrists that included words, police said.

He was wearing a brown puffy jacket, brown sweat pants, black running shoes, a black tuque and mittens.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 613-236-1222 ext. 5944 or Crime Stoppers toll-free at 1-800-222-8477.
