UPDATED REPORTS FROM NEIGHBORS:

September 7, 2013

I live right by Islands burger on Washington Blvd & I saw the story about that suspicious man that was reported following girls around the canals mainly by Clune Ave. I just spotted him walking on Washington Blvd towards the beach. I called it in to the police so they can find him but everyone should keep an eye out & be careful.


September 4, 2013

He walks by my house on Linnie quite often. I assumed he lived around here.


September 4, 2013
I often work from home and go out for a walk or coffee during the day. I often see this guy - for many many months. Have not had any interaction other than a hello. Seems more like a retired guy.


September 4, 2013

Was in the canals again today, saw him leaving thru the butterfly garden, 29th Ave. and Strongs Drive, towards the beach at 4:20pm.


ORIGINAL REPORTS FROM NEIGHBORS:

September 2, 2013

Our security company located the man still wandering through the canals. He claimed he was wandering around because some ladytook his picture (yes me). He didn't have a good story and was told to leave the neighborhood and walked out toVenice Blvd. as he had no reason for being here. (I will follow up with Security co. wrt the object under his shirt, I forgot to ask).


I am worried now because it sounds like he lives near here. Today wasn't mygirls1st encounter, which is whymy daughter got scared and ran with her friend. He was following them, she recognized him and so they took off, turned around and he wasless than 5 feet away from them in the alley with no one around. They ran as fast as they could. My daughter saidshe saw him a coupleof weeks ago on the pier. He followed her and herfriend then, smiled at them, waved and stared.

Then my older daughter saw the picture I took and said he lookeda lot like this guy that had followed her and her friend in the canals. They were in a boat and everytime they got to a bridgehe was there waiting for them, waving, smiling and then telling them they were pretty, etc. The girlshigh tailed it out of there and ranhome after the third bridge crossing. I remember them telling me about it about a month ago.

I amforwarding his photo and this information to the police. Thepolicemen on horses were just hereso the girls told them their story and Ishowed them the pictures. Theywill be on the lookout and pass thephotos to otherofficers on staff for our area. Theone with spurs was nottaking it lightly at all. Very nice officers (and horses).

Neighbor location: 28th Ave. between Dell Ave. and Clune Ave.

I showed the picture todaughters without saying anything, She said “this guy tried to talk to me”. She knew exactly when and where.

He was wearing the same shirt. These pictures need to get out to the canals and everyone around here! Did the police run his name?


September 2, 2013

Green shirt guy. He always has that shirt on. I've been seeing him all summer when walking the dog. He walks down Ocean to Washington to the beach usually.

September 3, 2013

I saw this guy being yelled at by two college age girls last year next to Alans Market. Again, he was apparently just staring and smiling but coming too close.


September 2, 2013

My young girls came home scared of this man who was following them through the canals. I found him, got a picture of him and have security after him right now. He is not walking in any particular direction. I ran home to call security and saw he had also followed me, probably because I got his picure.


September 2, 2013

My daughter saw this same man who tried to approach her on the pier, same outfit, a couple of weeks ago.


September 2, 2013

This is disturbing. I will show the pictures to my girls and find out if they have had any encounters.
