A man was arrested by police Monday afternoon when he was found wandering on the Palo Alto High School campus shortly after he approached a student and offered to have a relationship.
The man approached a freshman girl at lunch at the Town & Country Village Shopping Center and made "strange comments," asked her name and offered to have a relationship with her, Sgt. Sandra Brown said.
The girl alerted school officials who contacted police. The man was found a short time later on the Paly campus.
The man was later identified by police with the name Light (first name) Light-of-the-Earth (last name), Brown said. Since he touched the girl, the district attorney is filing charges of assault, trespassing and resisting arrest. Police have not determined the man's age.
