Police are looking for a man who they said left his six-year-old son at a Short North bar last night. Officers were called to Park Street Tavern around 7:30 p.m. by a woman who noticed the child and called 911. She and a friend were following the boy because it looked like he was being made to go from business to business to sell candy bars. When she approached the boy's father to ask for identification, she says he took off with an infant in a stroller and left the 6 year old behind. The boy is now with Children Services.
