The following is a press release from the Hermosa Beach Police Department:
On Monday 10-14-14, at approximately 3:35p.m., a female juvenile was walking northbound near the 2000 blk of Power Street. As she approached 20th Street, an unknown male in a white van traveling westbound 20th turned in front of her (to N/B Power); the male subject said, "Hi". The female juvenile did not respond to the male subject and he said, "Oh, great, now you're ignoring me".
The female juvenile then turned and ran to her friend's home to contact HBPD for assistance. Officers responded but did not locate the van. The female juvenile described the van as white in color and no windows along the side. The male subject could only be described as possibly Caucasian and he did not have an accent. Anyone with information is urged to contact Detectives (310)318-0360.
