San Leandro police are on the look out for a man who forcibly attempted to kiss a middle school boy at a Shell Gas Station before school this morning. Police report that at around 8:20 a.m., a group of Bancroft Middle School students were congregated at the Shell Gas Station at 1285 Bancroft Ave. when a man in a green pick-up truck parked near a pump and entered the station’s convenient store.
After exiting the store, the man, described as a dark-skinned man in his 50s or 60s, allegedly walked up to a boy, grabbed him by his shoulders and pulled the boy toward him in an attempt to kiss him, according to police. When the boy was able to push the man away, the suspect walked toward his truck, where he continued to make lewd and vulgar comments before driving away. The man wore dark sunglasses and a black sweat suit. His truck was possible a green Ford Ranger. San Leandro Police Lt. Richard DeCosta said that with the help of the gas station attendant and Bancroft Middle School staff, police have several leads in the case.
