Pleasant Hill police released a sketch today of a suspicious man who allegedly contacted two boys near Pleasant Hill Middle School on Sept. 3 and Sept. 9. The boys each sat down independently with a sketch artist to help create a composite sketch of the suspect, police said. In the Sept. 3 incident, an 11-year-old student was walking to meet his mother on the middle school campus when a man approached him and told him he was there to take him to a new pickup spot, police said. The boy continued walking and told his mother what had happened. According to police, the boy said the man was accompanied by a white woman in her 40s with dark skin and shoulder length dark hair. The woman had a nose piercing and was wearing hospital scrubs. The man was described as being a white man in his 50s with slicked back gray hair, a gray mustache and was wearing a red and orange polo shirt. He spoke with a heavy European accent, police said. In the Sept. 9 incident, a 12-year-old student was walking from the middle school when a man pulled up to him in a vehicle and asked for directions to Pittsburg. The boy responded and the man asked him to come closer to the vehicle. The boy refused and the man told him he would come to him. The boy walked away and later told his parents what had happened. He described the man as a white male in his 40s or early 50s with gray hair, a gray mustache and said he spoke with an accent, police said.
