The Temecula Valley School District reported to parents regarding a “child annoyance” incident regarding a Hispanic male who approached a group of fifth grade girls through the fence near Red Hawk Elementary School on Friday, October 18, 2013.
According to TVUSD, “Towards the end of the school day, at approximately 12:50 p.m., a group of 5th grade girls were walking around the field when they were approached by a man on the opposite side of the fence. The man spoke to the girls through the fence and encouraged them to come to the other side of the fence where he was. The girls refused and ran back towards campus.”
Per the report, the girls did not report the incident to Red Hawk Elementary School until Monday morning, Oct. 20. The school contacted the Temecula Valley Police Department immediately upon being informed, and detectives are actively investigating the case.
Per Riverside County Sheriff’s department, and TVUSD, “The description of the suspect is very similar to a man involved in two “child annoyance” incidents at Wolf Creek Park on September 30th. The man is described as Hispanic, 20-25 years old, about 5-foot-10, with a thin build, short, slicked-back hair, and a thin mustache and beard.”
TVUSD reminds parents, “This situation presents a good opportunity to remind your children what they should do if they are approached by a stranger, either on or away from campus. We also ask that you talk to your children about the importance of notifying teachers and/or staff whenever an incident such as this occurs so that we can immediately notify police.
Updates will follow when they arise.
