SOUTH SALT LAKE — Police are looking for a man who allegedly approached a 12-year-old boy and asked him what he would do to earn $50.

Around 10 a.m. Sunday morning, the boy and his father were walking along the Jordan River Parkway Trail, South Salt Lake police detective Gary Keller said in a news release Tuesday. When the boy ran ahead a short distance he said an "older man" approached him and asked, "What would you do to earn $50?"

The boy ran back and told his father, who was able to take a picture of the man as he walked away, according to the news release.

The man police are looking for was described as a white man around 65-years-old and heavy-set. He was wearing a red shirt, red shorts, and a gray and black hat. Police need to question the man about the incident, the news release stated.

Anyone with information on the man is encouraged to call South Salt Lake police dispatch at 801-840-4000.
