Sheriffs are asking for help identifying this man from surveillance photos

 

The Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station is seeking information on two cases of possible child annoyance that have occurred recent weeks.

On May 31, deputies made contact with a 16-year-old female victim who said that she had been approached by a man while pumping gas in the area of Pico Canyon Road and The Old Road at approximately 2:15 p.m. on May 27.

The approximately 25-year-old man — described as black, 6 feet tall with a thin build and driving a late-model black vehicle — reportedly approached the victim and asked if she was still in high school.

The victim responded, “yes,” and walked away, but the man followed her and continued to stare at her, according to a news release from the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station.

“The victim stated she felt very uncomfortable and scared as the male continued to follow her,” the news release states. “The victim got into her vehicle and drove away.”

Detectives were able to obtain surveillance photos of the man.

In another incident of alleged child annoyance, a 13-year-old female reported that she was approached by a man in a black vehicle while walking to school.

The driver asked the 13-year-old if she needed a ride, at which point she turned around and began walking in the other direction.

The man then reportedly turned the vehicle around and drove past her slowly again. The 13-year-old then ran into a friend’s nearby home and the vehicle drove out of view.

Both incidents are under active investigation and detectives are unsure at this time if the incidents are related or if there are one or two separate suspects.

Anyone with information on either of these incidents, or who recognizes the man in the surveillance photos, is encouraged to contact Detective Campbell at 661-255-1121 or at dwcampbe@lasd.org.

Tips can also be made anonymously by calling 1-800-222-TIPS.
