Northeast LA Alert, Man Sought for Child Annoyance

(EGPNews) – The Los Angeles Unified School District on Tuesday told parents to be on the alert for a man in a silver car who exposed himself to children.

The warning came after girls seated along the fence at Buchanan Elementary School in Highland Park spotted the man sitting in a silver vehicle “engaged in behavior that indecently exposed him to students,” states the Local District 4 Student Safety Alert sent home to parents.

The crime occurred on Sept. 30 at 12:12 while school was in session.

School officials ask that parents and students immediately report if they observe a man parked in a silver car in or around their school but to not approach the suspect.

Officials also urged students to take precautions when traveling to and from school, such as: walking in groups or pairs and remaining alert of your surroundings, do not approach suspicious vehicles, do not talk to or accept rides from strangers, report problems to the nearest school staff member or known adult at once, and to police as soon as possible.

Persons with information can call the LAPD Northeast Station at (213) 485-2549.
