Transient Assaults Two Cerritos High School Students, Teacher and SIA’s Detain Man

 

By Brian Hews

HMG-CN has learned, through a reader email and not an alert from ABCUSD, that a pervert scared two female students on their way to school yesterday morning.

The man, who was eventually arrested in the Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts parking lot, closely followed the females and at one point “bumped into them.”

The two students immediately informed a teacher and pointed the man out standing at 183rd and Bloomfield, the teacher along with two SIA’s bravely detained the man until Cerritos Sheriff’s arrived. The man was immediately arrested.

The Deputies informed the school that the suspect was a known transient who had been previously arrested for “upskirting” (taking pictures of undergarments of unsuspecting females).

The details of the investigation seemed to indicate that this was an effort to “upskirt” one of the students.

Both students were shaken but unharmed.

 

Below is the alert sent out to the “Cerritos High School Community:”

At approximately 8:10 am this morning, two CHS female students approached one of our teachers in front of the school and informed him that they were being closely followed by an adult male as they walked to school. Both students were en-route to CHS from the Cerritos Town Center. One of the students claimed that she had been bumped by the man. The students were able to point out the suspect on the corner of 183rd and Bloomfield and the teacher, along with our SIA’s, pursued the suspect and were able to detain him in the Performing Arts Center parking lot. Cerritos Deputies arrived soon after and arrested the suspect on the spot.

CHS Administrators were present when the two students were interviewed by the Deputies. The Deputies informed the school that the suspect was a known transient who had been previously arrested for “upskirting” (taking pictures of undergarments of unsuspecting females). The details of the investigation seemed to indicate that this was an effort to “upskirt” one of the students.

Both students were shaken but unharmed. We are grateful for our staff members quick and effective response to this incident. As a safety precaution, please emphasize with your children the importance of traveling in groups and being aware of their surroundings at all times when walking to and from school.
