This article is from Menlo Park Police. Similar van and man have also tried to talk to girls around a couple of schools in East Palo Alto, so police there are working with MP. We need to catch this guy! EPA police put out a flier today through the schools

Do our girls know what to do if a man like this tries to grab them? I hope all of them are learning self defense.

Only 3 comments?? That's what happens when something happens to lower income people on the east side. I need to remember that in Shallow Alto people get hysterical when their kid steps in dog poop.
