MILFORD, Del.- Police have arrested a 59-year-old Milford man accused of sexually soliciting two 4-year-old boys.

Milford police said that on Monday evening, officers responded to Brightway Commons Apartment Complex (formerly known as Banneker Heights) after receiving a call about an adult male suspect attempting to lure children into nearby bushes in order to have them commit sexual acts with him.

Police said that when officers contacted the suspect, identified as Leslie A. Nickelson, and tried to arrest him, he resisted them. Officers then utilized pepper spray on Nickelson and took him into custody.
