In a separate incident yesterday, Sept. 8, a 15-year-old female exited her school bus at the entrance to Creekside Mobile Home Park near Spinks Road and South Valley Parkway. As she walked through the park to go home, a man drove up to her and began asking if she knew a specific person. The girl said no and the man drove off. As the student neared her home, the man reappeared and again questioned her along with offering her a ride. The girl fled through homes and got away. She immediately notified her mother who went out to look for the suspect and located him. The mother took cell phone pictures of the suspect’s license plate.

The suspect, described as a heavyset Hispanic male, was driving a black Cadillac Escalade, Texas license plate FXR3396.
