Well has no one noticed it's mostly happening to girls at Kirk Balk Academy and it's always AFTER half 3 after most student get home AND it's a red Kia that the man was in. A lot of the girls at kba have said that he spoke to them.

Do the police know this?? They could perhaps get more of a description from all these girls and - who knows - a car reg?

Can't the police set a trap for him and then arrest and lock him up?

theres a few there was a white one yesterday followed me to shop and back and if he's spoke to the girls its likely they spoke back instead of walking away and cause he got attention there so will go back, parents aren't even bothered other wise they'd start picking kids up themselves or arrange a car pool, teach them to walk on inside of pavement and to wear clothes that gives them time to kick an attacker I have 2 pair of shorts on if I wear a dress and with the clothes the lasses wear a lot of them do look older it works two ways teach them to look after themselves and make this pervs job harder
