PALMDALE – Palmdale detectives are seeking the public’s help in identifying a suspect in a child annoyance case, which occurred Monday afternoon.
The incident happened around 4:45 p.m. in the area of 35th Street East and East Avenue R-14, according to Palmdale Community Relations deputy Robbie Royster.
A 13-year-old girl told detectives that she was walking home from school when a Hispanic man driving a white Toyota Prius began calling out to her and soliciting her to get into his vehicle.
The victim ignored the suspect’s request, ran home and reported the incident to her parents, who then contacted Palmdale Station, Royster said.
The child annoyance suspect is described as a 35-year-old Hispanic male with a shaved head, brown eyes, and a thin mustache. He is approximately 5’10” and weighs around 150 pounds. The suspect’s vehicle is described as a “pearl” white Toyota Prius with a California license plate.
Anyone with information regarding the suspect’s identity is asked to contact Palmdale Station’s Detective Bureau at 661-272-2400. If you would like to remain anonymous, you may do so by calling Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
