        Police say they found and questioned the men and that they won't be charged.

        The incident reportedly happened on Wolf Run Drive, off Beacon Hill Road.

        Police say two girls, ages 9 and 11 were on their bikes when two men pulled up in a van and tried to lure them in.
        The girls said "no" and rode off.
        Someone got the license plate of the van, police tracked down the two men and questioned them.
