ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Police say they have identified a person of interest in a luring case involving children near a school bus stop in Englewood.

Police first asked for help on Monday when the unidentified man allegedly approached several elementary school students on Monday in the area of South Zuni Street and West Wesley Street, near Baker Park.

The kids said the man made disturbing and inappropriate comments. One child told Denver7 the man said "bad words."

Authorities released a photo of the man and sought public help. 

Thousands of shares to the story later, police said they have identified a person of interest, but they did not release his name or any other information.

Denver7 will post the man's identity as soon as police release it.
