"A's" baseball cap. Search the cameras @ Dumbarton bridge. Quite a few incidents on this side of the bay are perpetrated by someone from 'the other side'.

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.
