AMHERST, Ohio (WJW) — A 77-year-old man has been charged after allegedly trying to lure children into his car at a convenience store in Amherst.
Donald Margolis is charged with criminal child enticement and ordered to wear a GPS monitor with a $1,000 bond, according to Oberlin Municipal Court.
Police responded to the Dairy Mart on Cleveland Avenue after a call about a suspicious man speaking with children, according to a City of Amherst Police Department report.
One of the children reportedly entered the man’s vehicle then got out “as bystanders became concerned.”
The court says Margolis entered a not guilty plea. He is set for trial on Sept. 1 at 11 a.m.
