LAWTON, Oklahoma -

Police are looking for a man who attempted to lure several children away from a playground in Lawton.

The incident happened at about 5 p.m. on Friday, April 4, at the playground at Southwestern Medical Center. A woman told police that her grandkids were playing at the playground when a man approached the kids and attempted to coax them away.

The woman said she then yelled at the children to come to her, and the man walked off.

Police said the man never touched or grabbed the children, but he did make a statement, "If you come with me, I will tell you where the baby rabbits are."

The suspect is described as a black man in his 50's. He stands about 6 feet 2 inches tall and weighs about 180 pounds. He was wearing a black jacket and white t-shirt.

Police are working to obtain a surveillance video of the incident.
