And a description of the suspect will never be forthcoming. Completely irresponsible on the part of the school district, the police and the Voice.
The Los Altos Police provided it in a bulletin about a similar incident at St. Simon this morning:
"White Male in his 50s, about 6 ft. tall, heavy set wearing navy blue polo and grey jeans at St. Simon's school on Grant, male suspect looking through the fence. When they tried to make contact, he took off on a bike. After that, a suspect matching the same description was at Bubb School where he tried to grab a student."
And there was a separate incident too:
"White Male in his 30s, with a brown goatee wearing a baseball cap; driving a new Ford 4-door pickup with paper plates 20-25 minutes ago, in Los Altos Hills suspect attempted to kidnap a student in front of a residence."
Los Altos paper already has the details from MVPD:
From the Los Altos Town Crier's coverage, the St Simon's incident appears to be nothing at all:
"Capt. Andy Galea said that after investigation, the suspect was believed to be to be a cyclist waiting for friends.
Mountain View and Los Altos police officers have determined that the incidents are unrelated.
"It appears this time that there was no crime," Galea said of the Los Altos incident."
I'm really hoping the Bubb incident was possibly a false alarm as a lot of these cases turn out to be.
Here's the official press release with a link to a sketch of the suspect. I'm not sure why Ned believed no sketch would be forthcoming.
If nothing else, this guy was trespassing on school grounds and should be questioned.
Wow, the school instituted the buddy system! So the solution is to have the kids watch each other. Two six year olds against a full grown man. I wonder who would win that one. How about parking a squad car on each campus every day. We are paying them enough.
I'm subsidizing property taxes for white males in their 50s and this is how they pay me back!
Bad enough that they refuse to support bond measures for our schools. Now there's also this!
Why doesn't the city leverage the WiFi network and surveillance cameras on public property to catch more bad guys?
The sketch looks a lot like one of a man (just a little heavier set and older) that was on the Megan's Law website about 2yrs ago. (I just looked and couldn't find the picture anymore).
Looks a lot like Burt Young.
