Man chases girl walking home from high school

Reynoldsburg police reported a man was seen chasing a juvenile girl who was walking home from school.

The reporting officer said he arrived at 2:52 p.m. Oct. 29 in the area of Haft Drive and Foxchase Road and talked to the girl, who said she had been walking home from the Reynoldsburg High School Livingston campus when a man started walking closely behind her.

She said the man asked her name, then walked in front of her and pulled up his shirt, showing her that he was wearing a "hot pink thong," according to the police report. She said she hurried to her own driveway and a neighbor called police for her.

The girl described the man as white, bald and about 30-35 years old.
