Elkhorn child enticement, girls approached, men sought

Elkhorn police are looking for two men after a reported child enticement on Monday, Jan. 2 around 10:30 a.m. near Market Street and Chelsea Drive.

Police said two girls, ages 6 and 7, were on their bikes on the sidewalk when a light green car pulled up with two men inside. They were wearing matching green T-shirts.

The passenger told one of the girls to get in the car. After she yelled, "Stop," the driver sped away, police said, heading east on Market Street toward Highway 11.

The girls said they actually saw the men back on New Year's Eve when the vehicle pulled up and the passenger said, "Hey," to them. This happened in the same neighborhood as Monday's incident, police said.

The driver was described having long hair and a beard.
