WATERBURY, Conn. (WTNH) — A police car drives by the same place where some teens told educators they got quite a scare on Monday.
“You just don’t do that especially with kids and it’s scary and I’m sure that the teenagers were scared,” said Waterbury parent,” Carol Griffin. “The world is getting crazy.”
The Waterbury School District alerted parents yesterday afternoon through emails, texts, and phone calls. It stated teens were walking to the bus stop at Walnut Avenue and Wall Street. A man driving a car asked one of the teens repeatedly to get inside, the girl said no and looked inside. She says he exposed himself. That’s when the teens made a commotion and the suspect drove away.
News 8’s Stephanie Simoni received a copy of the e-mail from a Waterbury parent.
Police say he was driving an older, green, Honda sedan. They described the suspect as a Hispanic man, in his 30’s, with shoulder length, slick-backed hair.
Griffin is relieved the teens knew what to do.
“Definitely stick together stay together, make a commotion, make scene. absolutely,” said Griffin.
