Parents Upset About Sex Offender Hanging Out By Elementary School

SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. - Local schools are once again back in full swing but tonight neighbors near Opportunity Elementary in Spokane Valley are concerned with someone they say is sitting outside its school.

Neighbors say a sex offender convicted of rape in the second degree has been sitting outside the elementary school watching kids come and go. They say the man will just sit on his bike on the corner right here near the school and simply stare at the kids.

The man's home is three tenths of a mile from the school but neighbors said they see him sit on his bicycle as he bikes around the perimeter of the building. One sister of an elementary school student said she's tried to get help but so far it hasn't worked.

"It's concerning because I don't think he should be allowed to be around little kids, and we called the Spokane Valley Police Department and we didn't receive a call back," said Hailey Zorrozua. "We called them again after we found him in our neighborhood and we called them again and they said he hasn't committed a crime so we can't do anything."
