Man Arrested For Annoying Female Student Near Placerita Junior High

Suspect name, picture not released as investigation into similar incidents continues.

A man was arrested Friday morning near Placerita Junior High
after a deputy observed him stalking a young female student who was walking to
school.

The 14-year-old girl told the deputy that she noticed the man
earlier in her walk to school because he seemed to be honking at
her.  She ignored the unwanted attention and continued to walk to
school.  As she turned onto Dalby Drive
from Orchard Village Road,
the man in the car turned that way also.  

Deputy Robert Wilkinson was patrolling on Dalby
Drive when he saw the man in the car in front of
him making contact with a female pedestrian, who was the student victim. There
was no obvious sign that anything was wrong, but he watched what was going on
as he drove past. He then noticed that the girl was crying and she made a hand
motion indicating that something was wrong.

Wilkinson stopped the driver and after investigating,
arrested the 31-year-old man on the misdemeanor charge of annoying children. The
suspect was driving a late model burgundy Honda Accord. Detectives are not
releasing his name or photo in order not to compromise any similar cases which
have not yet been reported.

Detectives request that anyone who may have
been approached by this suspect to call Santa Clarita Sheriff's Detective
Richard Welch at (661-799-5131.)
