HOUSTON – A 14-year-old girl reported that a suspicious man tried to pick her up from a Dayton school bus stop, Liberty County deputies said.
It happened at about 6:40 a.m. Tuesday at the corner of Highway 321 and Private Road 684, just north of Dayton.
The girl was alone at the bus stop when a man, she described as “creepy,” drove up in a small white car and offered to take her to school.
The girl said she screamed and ran away from the car and the man attempted to run after her, but couldn’t catch up because he was limping, deputies said.
Liberty County Sheriff Bobby Rader said he is asking all parents and students to be aware of the situation and to watch for and report any similar events.
Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff’s department at 936- 336-4500.
