[LASD] – Detectives from the Sheriff’s Department Special Victims Bureau are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying possible suspect(s) involved in two separate incidents involving Child Annoyance in the Santa Clarita area.
On Monday, October 15, 2012, at approximately 3:10 PM, a female juvenile was at Old Orchard Park, Santa Clarita, awaiting the arrival of her parents, when the suspect, who was seated on a park bench, asked her where her parents were. The suspect then told the victim that her parents sent him to pick her up. In fear, the victim ran away from the suspect towards Lyons Avenue, where she saw her mother, who was arriving to pick her up. The victim had never seen the suspect before this incident.
A second incident also occurred on Monday, October 5, 2012, at approximately 3:00 PM at the intersection of Old Orchard Road and Wiley Canyon Road, Santa Clarita. The victim was approached by the suspect who asked her if she wanted to get some ice cream. The victim told the suspect, “no,” and began walking away from him. The suspect continued to follow the victim, who then ran away from the suspect and hid until the suspect left the area.
Sheriff’s detectives are seeking the public’s help in identifying the suspect(s) or any other possible victims and/or witnesses.
