County police are looking for a man who made lewd sexual comments Sunday to two boys in the Clemens Crossing neighborhood, a police spokesman said.

The man, who was riding a brown 10-speed bicycle, approached a 15-year-old boy shortly before 4 p.m. on Martin Road and madea sexual remark, Officer Michael Sherman said. He then rode away on his bicycle.

At 6:30 p.m., a man on a bicycle approached a 9-year-old boy in the same area and made a sexual remark to him, Sherman said.

The man, who was in his 40s or 50s and had a gray beard and mustache, did not attempt to touch or abduct the children.

"It's something we want the residents in that area to be aware of," Sherman said.

Anyonewith any information about the incidents is asked to call police at 313-2266.
