LA MESA (CNS) - A 52-year-old La Mesa man was in jail Saturday for allegedly making sexual comments to a Helix High School student and grabbing her arm, as well as attempting to coax two Grossmont High School girls to get into his van, police said.
The Grossmont High School students, 14 and 15 year old girls, were walking to school May 10, when a man, later identified as Daniel Hubbard, passed by them three times in a tan van, La Mesa police said.
He then asked the girls if they needed a ride to school and told them to get into the van. He allegedly yelled at them to get into the van at one point then sped away when the two teens ran toward the school, police said.
A school resource officer sent a flyer that described the incident with all students and the officer received an anonymous call with suspect information, police said.
On Wednesday, an 18-year-old Helix High School student was on her way to school when she was allegedly approached by Hubbard, who pulled up alongside her in an older pickup truck, police said. He made comments to her and whistled, but the victim ignored him and continued to walk.
Hubbard then allegedly pulled to the curb and began walking with the victim and made several sexual comments to her. When she told him to leave her alone and she needed to get to school, he grabbed her left forearm and tugged on her arm, police said.
The victim pulled back and slapped his hand away and ran toward the school, police said.
Hubbard was booked into jail Friday for suspicion of attempted kidnapping, false imprisonment and annoying a child. He was held at San Diego Central Jail in lieu of $100,000 bail and was scheduled to be arraigned at 1;30 p.m. Tuesday, according to police and jail records.
