FRANKLIN — Franklin police are looking for a pair of men who they say approached a seven-year-old boy and asked if he wanted candy.

Officials say the incident happened around 2:20 p.m. on Sunday, September 24th near Church St. and Mission Hills Dr. in Franklin.

The boy was apparently walking when he was approached by two black males in a newer Chevy black pickup truck with a cover on it. Officials say neither subject got out of the vehicle. The boy ran home to report this to his mother.
