Following two alleged child annoyance incidents reported Monday afternoon near Temecula Luiseño Elementary School, the community was asked to be on alert.
In a letter disseminated Tuesday by the Temecula Valley Unified School District, parents were informed of the incidents that allegedly about 30 minutes apart Tuesday near the restroom at Wolf Creek Park, next door to the elementary school campus.
TVUSD stated that in each instance, a white or Hispanic man between 20 and 25 years old approached a girl and made alleged inappropriate comments.
“Both girls were able to flee without incident and reported it to their parents who then contacted the police,” TVUSD stated in the letter.
The incidents reportedly occurred at 3:20 p.m. and 3:50 p.m., after school had let out for the day, according to District Spokeswoman Melanie Norton.
Police are currently investigating both matters, Temecula police Sgt. Terry Jones confirmed.
Should parents or students witness someone who matches the suspect description behaving in a similar manner, they were asked to contact Temecula police at 951-696-4357.
The district also reminded students that while walking to and from school, they should “always be aware of your surroundings and report any inappropriate behavior to the police immediately.”
