Police are looking for information about an Asian man who followed a 14-year-old Milpitas girl walking to school on Thursday, according to police.
The Rancho Middle School student was followed from behind as she passed through (1500 block Yellowstone Ave). The man made vulgar sexual comments, but did not make physical contact with the student or close the gap between them.
Police describe him as 40-years-old, approximately 5’-04” tall, heavy build, black hair, and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing a blue beanie, gray leather jacket, blue jeans, and blue headphones.
The incident took place Thursday, May 26, around 8 a.m. He was last seen walking westbound on Yellowstone Avenue from Murphy Park.
Coincidentally, police reported a similar case on May 3 around 2:15 p.m. involving a Latino male and a 34-year-old Milpitas woman as she walked down Piedmont Road.
The man jumped out of the bushes in front of her and asked if he could borrow her underwear, repeatedly, as she backed away from him. She eventually ran from the scene.
She described the man as Latino, 20-25-years-old, approximately 5’8” to 5’11” tall, with a medium build, black hair, brown eyes. He was last seen wearing a light colored shirt and black or red framed glasses.
