Possible ‘stranger danger’ alert in Marana Unified School District | Crime
Parents in the MUSD were given a letter last Friday warning them about a possible ‘stranger danger’ situation near Desert Vista and Silverbell Road, and the 6000 block of W. Nueva Vista and W. Alegria, involving a couple of high school students. One of the incidents happened as recently as August 29.
According to the Marana Police Department, a man described as a Hispanic male, between 25-30 years old, was following high school students in these two neighborhoods. The alleged suspect was making ‘call him’ motions and driving slowly behind the students. According to police officials the man was seen circling the neighborhoods before leaving the area.
Neither student in this situation was harmed, Marana Police said.
The suspect is between 5’7” and 6’0” tall, had close cut black hair and possible acne on his face, as well as a goatee. He was also reportedly wearing a black shirt and driving a late model white sedan, with molded bumper guards on the doors.
Residents are encouraged to contact the Marana Police Department at 382-2000, 88-CRIME or 9-1-1, if they have any information on the suspect, or know about the incidents.
