Man hangs out by bathroom, tries talking to kids in Cheney

Posted: Updated:
CHENEY, Wash. -

Creepy Alert: Are you watching who your kids are talking to? Some Cheney moms have reported seeing a man hanging out at Salnave park during soccer practice, trying to talk to their kids, then running away when adults show up.

The park is right by Salnave Elementary School. Cheney police say they are investigating this case and are searching for the man. One of the biggest concerns moms have said is the man is hanging around the bathrooms to try and talk to kids.

One mom posted to Facebook describing what happened the other day during her kids' soccer practice between 5 and 6 p.m. There was a man in his mid 30's with dark hair, hanging around the bathroom.

At one point, the mom says he went inside the girls bathroom where two girls ran out. He pretended to unlock the supply room door with keys. Another mom posted with pictures showing the man hanging out during her stepson's practice. She says he was by the bathrooms and he was saying he worked for the park and asked kids to come help him. When parents showed up, he ran to his car.

KHQ talked with the Cheney Parks and Recreation Department and they have received calls about the man. They say they have no one matching the description of that man that works inside their parks department. They also say they only work until 3 p.m. so they would not be out at a soccer practice from 5 to 6 p.m.

If you know anything, report it to Cheney police: (509) 498-9235.
