4 years ago by in ( News )

    On Monday, June 10, 2013, at approximately 3:00 p.m., Brea Police Officers received a report of a child annoyance. The incident occurred on Birch Street west of North Associated Road, Brea at approximately 2:30 p.m.

      The victims, two female students from Brea Olinda High School, a 17 year-old and a 15 year-old, were running together westbound on the north curb line of Birch Street just west of North Associated Road when they were approached by a male suspect who was walking eastbound on Birch Street. As the two female victims ran toward the suspect, he held out both of his arms and the 17 year-old ran around his outreached arms. As the 15-year old approached the suspect he told her to “stop,” he then made some comments to her and then grabbed her arm. The victim shoved the suspects arm away and kept running west on Birch Street. The suspect continued to walk eastbound Birch Street toward North Associated Road. The victims ran to the Brea Police Department where they reported the incident to officers.

        The male suspect is described as a male, white, approximately thirty years old, 5’9” tall with an average build, having light brown hair, brown eyes, and wearing a white button down dress shirt and khaki pants. The victims did not see a suspect vehicle.

          Brea Officers checked the area after the incident, but were unable to locate the suspect. Officers will increase their patrols in the area. The Brea Police Department contacted officials from the Brea Olinda Unified School District and advised them of the incident.

            The investigation is ongoing and anyone who may have witnessed the incident is urged to call the Brea Police Department at (714) 990-7624.

              For additional information contact Sgt. Jim Griffin (714) 990-7620 or after hours, call the on-duty Watch Commander at (714) 990-7624.
