Posted: Updated:
SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. -

The Spokane Valley Police Department wants parents to be away of an incident reported earlier this week where a young female student saw a man while walking to and from school on the same day last week. The man's suspicious behavior was concerning to the student, but his intentions are not known. Police say attempts to locate and identify the man have not been successful and no similar incidents have been reported.

This advisory is to inform parents in the area of this information and to request anyone who has information regarding similar incidents or can help identify this male to call Crime Check at 50-456-2244, reference #10049317.

As the student walked to school in the area of Evergreen and 26th, the male drove up in an older, small white 4-door vehicle. The male asked if she had missed he bus since she appeared to be running and if she needed a ride.  The student did a great job, declined the ride and continued her way to school.

Later in the afternoon as she walked home from school, she noticed the male walking behind her near Evergreen and 24th.  The male did not say anything or attempt to contact her but after the morning’s incident, she got a “creepy feeling” seeing the male again.  A couple blocks later, a neighbor pulled up and gave her a ride home.

The male was described as being in his 50’s or 60’s, approximately 5’11” with medium build and balding with gray hair on the sides.  The male was wearing shorts with a windbreaker style jacket which were orange and back in color. 

Although the male’s reported actions are not criminal, his intentions are not known and were alarming to the young student.   Deputies/Detectives would like to identify this male and talk to him about this incident. 

Anyone with information regarding this incident, has observed similar activity or can help identify this male is asked to call Crime Check at 509-456-2233, reference #10049317.
