San Mateo High School students reported encounters with a suspicious person twice this week and police are warning community members to be alert. On Wednesday, police were contacted with a report of a suspicious person seen on West Delaware Street around 8 a.m. on Monday. The male subject parked his vehicle at the curb across the street on West Delaware and called out to a 16-year-old female student walking on the other side of the street “Good morning. Can I ask you a question?” The girl ignored the man, who then asked her to come closer.
She instead walked into the school. The subject in that incident was described as a light-skinned Asian male, 35 to 40 years old and balding, with some hair on the sides. He was driving a silver 4-door hatchback. Today, police received a report of an incident that occurred on or around last Thursday, around 9 a.m. A 16-year-old student reported noticing a suspicious male in a vehicle looking at her while she parked her car on North Eldorado Street just south of the school.
The man drove away and circled the block, before pulling up beside her as she got out of her car. He said “Good morning,” and the girl ignored him and walked toward the school. He drove alongside as she reached the corner of Poplar Avenue and North Delaware Street and said “What’s up?” but she again ignored him and he drove away. The subject in that incident was described as a Filipino male in his 40s, bald and driving a white or light-colored 4-door sedan, possibly a Toyota or Honda. No threats were made in either case, but police are investigating due to the suspicious circumstances and plan to release a sketch of the suspect in coming days. Community members should report any suspicious activity to police right away via 911.
