Authorities looking for man who stalked high-school girls

Berkeley, California – The suspect who approached high-school girls and asked for hugs in two different cases is being sought by the Berkeley Police Department, authorities said on Tuesday.

The latest case occurred when the suspect approached a girl who was walking on McGee Avenue near Channing Way.

According to witness testimony, the suspect, a White 5-foot-5-inch male with facial hair, informed the girl that he wanted to go with her to Berkeley High School to see his daughter.

When the girl refused, he assured her that she shouldn’t be concerned because he was a police officer. According to authorities, he then approached her, requested a hug, and threatened her with a knife.

On September 29, another incident happened in the 1300 block of Gilman Street. According to authorities, the man told the girl he was a police officer with a handgun and asked for a hug.

The girl fled and later reported the incident to the authorities.

The man also has a new model of red Ford Mustang Fastback with dark tinted windows, according to police.

Anyone with a security camera in the Channing Way and McGee Avenue area is asked to report any footage of the suspect between 9:15 a.m. and 9:45 a.m. on Dec. 6. Residents in the Gilman Street, Acton Street, and Hopkins Street areas are also asked to contact law enforcement if they have any unusual surveillance footage from the evening of Sept. 29.

The department’s sex crimes unit can be reached at 510-981-5735 for further information on the case.
