    On August 8, 2013 at approximately 2:50 PM, a 15 year-old male Pacific Grove High School student was approached by an adult male on Sunset Avenue in front of the high school stadium on Sunset. According to the student, the male asked, “If you had a cell phone, would you be able to call someone if I kidnapped you?” The student ran to a nearby passerby and the male left the area walking on Sunset Avenue towards Asilomar.

    The subject was described a Hispanic male adult in his late 20’s to early 30’s, 5’8” to 5’10”, 180 lbs., with dark hair and a mustache wearing a long black trench coat, black fedora hat, dark jeans, dark shirt. And black shoes.

    If you have any information regarding this incident or this subject, please contact the Pacific Grove Police Department at 831-648-3143.

    The Police Department also recommends you to discuss with your child the following “Stranger Danger” tips and strategies to help protect themselves:
    •Know your name, address, and phone number.
    •Use the buddy system and avoid walking anywhere alone.
    •Trust your instincts if you feel you are being followed or something is not right, seek help immediately.
    •If a stranger approaches you, you do not have to speak to him or her. Never approach a stranger in a motor vehicle. Just keep walking. Do not accept candy or any other items from a stranger. Never walk off with a stranger no matter what he or she tells you.
    •If someone is following you try to remember the license plate of his or her vehicle and immediately tell a trusted adult.
    •If a stranger grabs you, do everything you can to stop him or her from pulling you away or dragging you into his or her car. Drop to the ground, kick, hit, bite, and scream. Do whatever it takes to attract the attention of others who can help you. If someone is dragging you away, scream, “this is not my dad,” or “this is not my mom.”
