Dear BISD Families,
The North Richland Hills Police Department released the following press release late Tuesday, Feb. 18.
NRHPD asking for the public’s help searching for a man for indecent assault of a teen near Susan Lee and the North Electric Trail
On February 10th, 2020 just after 3:00 pm, a white male in his 20's was seen in the area of the North Electric Trail and Susan Lee Ln. He reportedly spoke to a juvenile female, asking for a hug. When she declined, he moved closer and grabbed her buttocks before running away.
The male is reported to have been seen in the area before. On the day of the incident, he was walking west on the North Electric Trail towards Susan Lee Ln. The incident occurred on Susan Lee near Jean Ann, and the male was last seen running west on the North Electric Trail from Susan Lee Ln.
The man is described as a white male in his twenties with sandy colored hair that is longer on top. He has scruffy facial hair and is described as having a "lazy eye" affecting his left eye. He was wearing a green jacket and black skinny jeans or joggers.
We are aware of a reported incident in Haltom City in November 2019, but currently have no evidence to support a connection between the cases. The detectives have been investigating several leads and collecting evidence. They are now asking for the public’s help. The attached video is a person of interest we are looking to ID or speak to regarding the incident.
If you recognize the man in the video, or have any information/tips, we ask that you contact Criminal Investigations - 817-427-7030.
BISD wants to remind parents that safety education is one of the best defenses in protecting our children. The District supports your parental efforts and asks you to take the time to go over the following safety tips with your children:
- Walk to and from school in groups.
- Never accept a ride without first getting permission from parents.
- Never take shortcuts. Always stick to routes selected by parents, and stay on main roads.
- Never advertise that you are going home alone. If you wear a house key, keep it under your clothing.
- Have plans for emergencies and practice them at home with your parent.
- Have your parent help you make a list of safe places you can go to for help along walking routes.
- Report all suspicious behavior and "new adults or older friends" to parents.
- Never leave school with anyone before checking with school officials.
* These safety tips were taken from the Run*Yell*Tell, Ltd. anti-victimization program founded by Diana Jones, a national leader for child safety issues.
Schools remain among the safest places for our children. Working together, we can provide a safe environment for our children.
