The man was described as white, about 25 to 30 years old with a shaved head and tattoos on both of his arms.
MIDLOTHIAN - If you saw a man with a shaved head and tattoos on both his arms trying to entice a young boy to join him over behind some boxes in the Wal-Mart parking lot in Midlothian on May 5, the police would like to hear from you.
Around 2:45 p.m., police were called to the Wal-Mart at Highway 67 and Highway 287, where a 41-year-old woman said she had confronted a man who was trying to entice her 6-year-old son by whispering and beckoning the child over while the man hid behind some boxes.
When she asked him what he was doing, he fled into the parking lot.
Police blocked all entrances and exits to the store and conducted a search for the man, who was not located and is still at large.
He was wearing a black ball cap, black t-shirt and blue jeans.
Anyone with information regarding this incident is urged to contact the Midlothian Police Department at 972-775-3333.
