Man sought for scaring children in Sorrento

Lake County deputies seek public's help in ID'ing man

SORRENTO, Fla. – Lake County deputies are asking for help identifying a man they say approached a group of children.

Deputies released a sketch of the man, who they say walked up to the children Saturday in the Sorrento Springs subdivision of Sorrento.

Investigators said the children then ran and hid behind a house out of fear. The group told deputies the man was driving a small silver or gray car with rust spots and dents.

Anyone who recognizes the man is asked to call the Lake County Sheriff's Office.
