Calimesa Police Investigate Child Annoyance Report

A man has tried to offer a Mesa View Middle School girl a ride home three times in the last two weeks, according to the Riverside County Sheriff's Department.

A man pulled up to a 13-year-old girl in a car on Tuesday, asking if she needed a ride, and then drove off when the girl declined the offer, according to the Riverside County Sheriff's Department.

The girl was walking home from Mesa View Middle School at around 2:50 p.m. when she was approached my a man in a white sedan near the intersection of Calimesa Boulevard and Myrtlewood Drive. When the girl declined the man's offer of a ride, he drove away southbound on Calimesa Blvd. The girl then reported the suspicious activity to her legal guardian when she got home, who called the Calimesa Police Department, said Sgt. Alan Meservey.

An investigation revealed that this is the third time this has happened in the past two weeks, involving the same suspect and victim. Each time the girl declines the offer, and each time the suspect doesn't exit his vehicle, said Meservey. The latest incident was confirmed by an employee at a nearby fast food restaurant.

The suspect is being described as a white male or light-skinned Hispanic, 60-65 years old, with short combed back grey hair. He has several age spots on his face and was wearing prescription glasses, according to reports. His vehicle is described as a newer, white sedan.

Mesa View Middle School is aware of the incidents and is contacting parents and guardians of its students.

The Calimesa Police Department reminds children and students to always walk in groups of two or more and know your surroundings at all times. Never enter a vehicle with a stranger and always walk in common areas, staying away from deserted buildings and parking lots.

Anyone with information about this case is urged to call Investigator Dion Davis at the Cabazon Sheriff's Station at 951-922-7100 or the Riverside County Sheriff's Dispatch Center at 800-950-2444, or email at CabazonStation@RiversideSheriff.org

Oh no the same thing happened to me way back in 89 long time ago but i was leaving beaumont middle school walking home and a guy pulled up next o asked if i wanted a ride i looked over and he was completely naked i ran all the way home and told the school he was never found. Girls be careful walking home one of these times the guy may not be so nice please be careful.

My first impression of you is that you must be a total idiot or you are just retarded!
randy helton September 13, 2012 at 06:30 AM
Karen, Karen, Karen. You stupid ass fool !! Look at what you typed! You need to go back to school and take an English class! I bet you are on welfare or you are just mentally retarded. You will never have a job better than McDonalds! You obviously have below average intelligence.

Randy, your unprovoked attack on Karen proves you are the one with mental issues. Intelligent people know how to get their point across without insulting others. And what on earth does your rant have to do with the story?

Thanks Summer I Agree!! Goodness!

If my kid said she was approached even once I would not be letting her walk home alone again, even if it meant paying a friend or neighbor to escort her home if I couldn't get off work. Three times this happened? What are the parents waiting for- the fourth time to be the charm?

I like Randy talking about someone needing an English course, as he wrongly adds a space between his exclamation marks (should be one exclamation mark) and he leaves out the appropriate punctuation on his fifth sentence (no comma after the word welfare). Pot calling the kettle black.

The article doesn't state that the girl reported the previous encounters. Maybe her legal guardian was not aware it had hapened.

Randy was probably the naked guy in the car that Karen declined and he's got resentment issues. It is unintelligent and sick people like Randy that make me wonder why everyone is allowed to reproduce! Sandra, I was wondering the same thing. Notice that Randy didn't catch that! Very odd.
Karen September 13, 2012 at 10:35 PM
Actually doesnt bother me one bit what randy says lol i was very serious the same thing happened to me a long time ago and you know what the description sounds like an older version of the guy that pulled up next to me. My point by saying my story is maybe the first girl that reported this was telling truth it has happened before i know this and its happening again and maybe its a totally different pervert but the girls need to walk together and be aware there are sickos out there and randy you must not have a daughter and if you do then why take it serious when it happens to her? Be aware now oh and by the way your far off lol im not on welfare thank you although that has nothing to do with anything and is none of your business lol i dont care how my typing is im on my ipad one finger typing is not the same and i choose to do it this way i dont care what someone who knows nothing about me thinks lol just shows your the type i would care less to know soooo oh well think what you want lol but your way off lol
Karen September 13, 2012 at 10:41 PM
Seriously think about it these guys are not pulling next to the girls to say hi or see how there day is going they have other things on there minds im sure. Please be aware and try not to be alone when walking anywhere. I would hate to see the next article saying this guy raped or murdered one of these girls all im saying is it happens and calimesa is too close so it could happen to someone we know just be careful.
Karen September 13, 2012 at 10:44 PM
Im re reading what randy put and so confused why does that make me an idiot i was in 7th grade and this same thing happened to me i thought if people knew that it is true happened before maybe would think twice about the girls story but you call me an idiot, retard, stupid ass fool????why?????
ATC September 13, 2012 at 10:57 PM
Don't waste too much time ...Randy is obviously just a troll. If you click on his name above, the page is gone. It looks like he registered just long enough to post several bulls__t comments on a couple of stories, then deleted his profile.
Karen September 13, 2012 at 11:03 PM
If anyone has seen the updated article i could swear they seen my post before writing that lol exactly what i was saying. So glad im not the only ignorant person on welfare lol
Ellen Carr September 14, 2012 at 06:45 AM
Karen you're not an idiot or ignorant You offered us your experience and your advice. I live in Banning. My grandkids who live in Cat. City had someone who stopped and offered them a ride. Instead of walking away they stopped and spoke to the man. When I found out I told them don't stop just run and run. I also told them to scream as loud as they could. Hopefully this never happens. My grandkids are 8 and 10 but they're never to young to learn what to do in a situation like that.
Mariana Zuelsdorf September 14, 2012 at 07:46 AM
Karen, you were absolutely right to post your experience! Every woman/mother/grandmother is totally on your side, as well as most of the guys. I'm surprised that Patch left Randy's posts on here. From Randy's post, I get the feeling he's been on Patch under different names. There can't be that many morons in the Pass area, can there?
Washy September 14, 2012 at 10:50 AM
Karen real washy here (lol) Thank you for sharing your experience. Please don't apologize for that! Of us here you know the fear this young girl felt. I wonder if this is the same man who tried to grab the Beaumont student or the Cabazon (in the PE there is an article about this happening in Cabazon too) student
Karen September 14, 2012 at 07:49 PM
Exactly i was scared out of my mindi didnt want anyone to know cause i was embarrased the guy was naked and at alert lol i never seen that before i was in 7th grade. I was really shocked to see the same thing i experienced and really really shocked to see the description i described him same way but he was alot younger. He had hair kinda like tony danza in whos the boss but a little fuller and a little longer black hair very light skinned mexican and the car was a baby bluish color. I know how i felt and i dont think any of the kids would make this up its tooo similiar. I just relived it all when i read this. All the kids need to be careful not just girls. This is a sick person andi hope they catch him. Soon

Hopefully, they can review Megan's Law web page for this area and locate the guy for questioning. Something tells me, based on how he is described, that he has probably done this before and is more than likely a pedophile of sorts.
