Wilson ElementaryThere was an encounter at Wilson School on November 16th where an older man tried to grab a child. Fortunately the child ran away and called for help.
Kahala Community ParkAt a baseball game there was an incident by the Men's Restroom at the pavilion. There were three suspicious men that approached a youth baseball players in the men's restroom and asked him for specific personal information including name and where he lived. Luckily a parent was there with the players as they went to the bathroom. HPD was requested to investigate. After HPD was called the individuals left, but later returned again to the area.
It is recommend that children have an adult escort while using the public restroom for safety. While this happened at the men's restroom, females should also have an escort when heading to the restrooms.
Please let your friends and family be aware of these recent incidents so they can keep their families safe. If any other incidents occur please report it to HPD and the league so that we can continue to inform our community.
