    Sounds like the same dude who tried to grab a 3 year old at Piper Park. To bad the babysitter wasn't able to use the baseball bat she threatened him with. This guy needs found and taken off the streets so keep your eyes open people.

    In the parking lot of the school! This guy is dangerous. With all the cameras up these days someones had to have caught something.

    Why don’t we have an “amber alert” for pedo suspects?

Where I used to have fox17online.com as my homepage, this is no longer the case. Why? This website really sucks!! Please fix this I BEG of you!!!
