Nampa Police have arrested two brothers on suspicion of misdemeanor child enticement.

Officers say 38-year-old Charles E. Roberts and 39-year-old David J. Roberts, both of Caldwell, were arrested Saturday after someone called police to report a man was chasing small children in a Nampa neighborhood.

When police arrived, residents told them a man had gotten out of a blue pickup and chased an 11-year-old boy and a 9-year-old girl, but fled when the children's mother came out of a nearby house.

Police arrested the brothers after searching for a pickup that appeared to match the description given by witnesses.

It was not immediately clear if either man had obtained an attorney.

Police are trying to finding out if anyone else encountered a similar situation in the Nampa area recently.
