Police look for man who followed 12-year-old

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Police in San Diego's Tierrasanta neighborhood were on the lookout Thursday for a man suspected of following a 12-year-old girl even after she confronted him and told him to stop.

The girl told police she was walking about 5:45 p.m. Wednesday in the area of 4000 Santo Road when she noticed the man was following her, according to San Diego police Lt. Andra Brown.

"She crossed the roadway multiple times, but he also crossed the road, continuing to follow her," Brown said. "The girl confronted the male and told him to stop following her.

"He said he wanted to talk to her, but she told him to leave her alone and continued walking away. He followed her further onto a residential street and she again confronted him. When he approached a second time, she struck him and ran away and hid."

The girl then ran home and reported the incident to her mother, Brown said, adding that the suspect did not touch the girl, who was unharmed.

The suspect is a dark-skinned Hispanic man in his late 20s. He is 5 feet 10 inches tall with a medium build and was wearing a gray zip-up hoodie over a white T-shirt, blue jeans and gray Nike athletic shoes with a white logo.

The suspect had cheetah framed sunglasses on top of his head and mumbled when he spoke. He also appeared to have a green tattoo on the back of his neck.

Anyone with information regarding this incident was asked to call the SDPD Eastern Division at (858) 495-7900 or Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.

    Authorities called in a mobile DNA lab and anthropologists to help identify the dead as the search went on for victims of the most destructive wildfire in California history. The overall death toll from the outbreak of fires at both ends of the state stood at 25 Sunday and appeared likely to rise.

     
    The dead were found in burned-out cars, in the smoldering ruins of their homes, or next to their vehicles, apparently overcome by smoke and flames before they could jump in behind the wheel and escape. In some cases, there were only charred fragments of bone, so small that coroner's investigators...
