Has anyone else heard about a sex offender hanging around Bubb Park? I have received the following email warning from several sources:
Pass this along to any of your neighbors and local friends.... (came from a very VERY reliable source)
Head's up if you go to Bubb Park in Mt View. There is a registered
sex offender hanging out at the bathrooms at Bubb Park. I am just
forwarding this so you can keep an eye on your kids and their safety.
call 650-903-6395 from your cell for emergencies
Here are hard facts confirmed with authorities:
-Yes, this person has been around for years. But not without incidents. Yes, we are talking about one guy. The fence guy and the bathroom guy are the same guy.
-The police agree he is escalating, and he is confirmed as a registered sex offender. He has been considered low risk in the past. The police and many neighbors have noted an uptick in his behavior these past few months.
- He is enough of a threat that the parks department was instructed to build a second fence. He may be able to go in and out through that fence due to a gap, or loosened boards.
- Due to certain laws he does not fit the criteria to be on the Megan's law website.
- It is not clear whether the school could have legally shared the nature of its restraining order, posted info in the office for parents to see, mentioned it in a newsletter, or shared their knowledge about this person and his shared fence with Bubb Park.
