Sheriff's deputies seek suspicious man who approached teens in Rochester

Staff reportSeptember 19, 2013 

Thurston County sheriff's deputies are searching for a suspicious man who allegedly told three teens waiting at a school bus stop in Rochester Wednesday morning he wanted to "show them pictures."

The man was in a "light cream" or "light green" four-door sedan when he drove up to the bus stop in the 10000 block of 179th Avenue SW about 6:30 a.m. Wednesday.

He allegedly approached two teenage girls and a teenage boy as they were waiting for the school bus, and said he wanted to show them pictures, according to a news release.

When the father of the girls stepped out of his house, the suspect said "I got to go," and sped away.

The suspect is described as a white man between 35 and 45 with short brown hair. He may have had a mustache, and it appeared as though he may not have shaved in a few days, according to the news release.

Anyone with information should call the sheriff's office at 360-786-5500.
