CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - Detectives with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department (CMPD) are asking for the public’s assistance in locating a man they believe has been involved in ‘suspicious activity’ around school bus stops.

According to CMPD, the activity has occurred in the south Charlotte and Pineville areas.

The person of interest is described as a heavy-set, middle-aged, bald Hispanic male.

He reportedly drives a light blue/gray sedan, which is possibly a Tesla.

Police said the man has allegedly driven past the bus stops and engaged with middle-school-aged girls.

That’s disgusting to be honest,” said Eli Sterling, who lives in the area.

“You hear about that stuff online...and then you hear about it in your area, and it just makes it all the more real.”

Parents learning about this, like Tamiko Wilder, say a conversation with your kids about safety is imperative.

“I try to tell my kids growing up if you don’t know them, don’t say a word and come and tell me if anybody approaches you about anything,” said Wilder.

CMPD is working with the Pineville Police Department and the CMS Police Department to investigate this.

Anyone with any information about the man, or where he may be, is urged to call 911.
