SCRANTON, Pa. (AP) — Authorities say a man dressed as a character from the Angry Birds video game tried to pick up four children in a Pennsylvania grocery store parking lot.

Police Lt. Marty Crofton says the man had been reading magazines in the Scranton grocery and at about 6 p.m. asked the children if they wanted a ride, but they ran away and told authorities, the Scranton Times-Tribune reports.

Crofton says the man appeared to be in his 50s, with a large belly and glasses.

No arrests have been made and the investigation is continuing.
