(BLOOMINGTON) - Police are investigating an attempted kidnapping case after a man lured two young boys into the woods in Sunday night.

On Sunday just before sunset, the 5-year-old boys were riding their bikes near a park in a Bloomington apartment complex when a man approached them and told them to follow him into the woods. Police say the boys listened to the stranger and followed him.

Police say someone playing Frisbee golf nearby heard one of the boys crying and helped walk them out of the woods, closer to the sidewalk. The stranger took off the other direction. The boys' father called police.

Police say the boys were not injured or touched inappropriately. Police are in the process of reviewing the footage to get more clues so they can put together a description of the suspect's and or his vehicle.
