    LA - Man tries twice to pick up preschoolers

    Man tries twice to pick up preschoolers

    BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Police are looking for a man that tried to pick up a child from preschool without permission on February 15th.

    According to reports, the man went into the gym of an area preschool holding a rose and gave the name of a child he was there to pick up. When he was told there were no kids by that name, he allegedly walked outside, came back in and said he was there to pick up another child, giving a different name. School officials told him he didn't have permission to take the child and he left.

    OMG. Was he serious? Did he think they were going to just hand over a toddler because he knew their first name? Somebody get this moron off the streets , please.

    It's scary because this guy sounds like he was very bold and determined. What's even scarier is that he's still loose. I really hope the people in Baton Rouge and surrounding areas are aware of this and what happened.

    He is not going to get the chance to take 'pick one up' at school, hopefully. But I agree, he is very dangerous, and seems desperate. I have no doubt that he would grab a child if he gets an opportunity. Let's hope someone recognizes him first.

    The rose just about does me in. That is tremendously creepy.

    What's really scary is this age child is one of the easiest to abduct. I have a preschooler we go over stranger danger and all that. But I think he could be easily tricked into going anywhere (although we practice this all the time). Just when I think we are on it, I'll throw in a puppy or candy scenario (even though we've done this a lot) and sometimes he will still fall for it. If parents don't keep their eyes on their kids 100% of the time in public, this guy could get his prey. Very scary.

    That is really scary. Sounds like this guy "needs" a child now - and is determined to find one. I hope they catch him before we hear of a child missing from a park or playground...

    I'm about 20 minutes from Baton Rouge and I have not heard about this yet. I just turned the local news on and will pass along any info I hear.

    Ok I just saw it on WAFB.

    Not much more info.

    They said he got the names by looking at artwork displayed at the school. Did not say what school it was.

    Asking anybody with information to call Crime stoppers.

    According to WAFB, "He was last seen driving a red Chevy pickup with a white sticker on the back glass."

    Why are we just now hearing about this incident? It happened a week ago. I haven't seen anything in the New Orleans news, and when you have a predator on the loose who's as brazen as this guy, I think it should be reported across the state, or at least within a 150-200 mile radius. Schools have to be alerted. This situation is being taken too lightly, imo.

    I agree bessie.

    I'm worried he will find a child somewhere else, besides a child care/preschool center.
    I worked as a preschool teacher for years and I can tell you, his chances of any preschool letting him take a child without proper documentation is slim to none. But, parks and malls and other public areas is not so hard to snatch a child.

    Every parent in Louisiana should know about this story.

    The suspect is described as a white man between 23 and 26 years old. He was about 5'10" and weighed 175-185 pounds. He also had brown hair.

    He was last seen wearing a blue t-shirt, black skull cap, blue jeans and sunglasses.

    He drove off in a red Chevy pickup with a white sticker on the back glass.

    For all the good it will do, I e-mailed the links to our local news outlets with a suggestion that they run the story. I spoke with two friends who work in local elementary schools: one's a teacher in Orleans; the other is a secretary in a Jefferson Parish school. Neither had heard any mention of the incident.

    I agree with you, Kimberly, the chances are very slim that a school employee would release a child to this guy. You never know, though. It only takes one mistake. Regardless, if he struck out at one school, he'll try again at another. I'd bet on it. Schools AND parents have to be alerted to be on the lookout.
