Police looking for man who harassed SLO High student Friday

Police are looking for a man who harassed a San Luis Obispo High School student Friday.

The 17-year-old girl pulled into the school's parking lot between 1:45 and 2 p.m., when a pickup truck entered behind her. When she parked her vehicle, the truck pulled in behind the car, blocking her in the parking space.

The driver of the truck then called out repeatedly "hey little girl, let's play," and tried to entice the girl to get out of her car and into his truck for several minutes, according to police.

When a group of people walked near her vehicle, the teen was able to get out of her car and run to the group for help.

The suspect then drove out of the parking lot and out of sight of the witnesses

The victim immediately notified school officials, who then contacted the school's resource officer, also a San Luis Obispo police officer. A search of the area did not locate the suspect.

The suspect is described as a white male adult in his 20s to 30s, with short brown hair, a large build and was wearing a dark shirt. Because he never got out of the car, no further details about his height, weight or clothing were known.

The suspect's truck was described as an older model “box-style” full-size Chevrolet pickup, forest green, extra cab, with the word “Chevrolet” spelled out across the tailgate.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 549-STOP or the police department at 781-7317.
