Homeless Man Sought for Questioning

By City News Service

(CNS) – A homeless man offered a lollipop to a 6-year-old boy standing in the front yard of his East Los Angeles home last week, then grabbed his shirt, causing the child to run inside and tell his grandmother.

The boy was in front of his house in the 1400 block of Miller Avenue around 8:35 p.m. when he was approached by the man pushing a shopping cart, said Sgt. Joe Gonzalez of the sheriff’s East Los Angeles Station.

The man was being sought for questioning, but the case is not being treated as an attempted abduction, Gonzalez said.

The man was described as black, older, with a thick build and gray hair and beard. He was wearing blue jeans, a blue shirt and work boots, Gonzalez said.
