On August 28, 2012, at about 7:30 p.m., a female minor was walking home from Thousand Oaks High School. A white adult male, driving a black truck, stopped and contacted the female, while remaining in his truck. The male offered the female money. The female, frightened by the male, declined his offer and hurried home. She reported the incident to police.
The following day, two other female minors were skateboarding near CVS Pharmacy located at 125 North Reino Road, when a white male driving a black truck approached them. The male subject offered them money, but the girls declined his offer and walked into the store. Approximately five minutes later, the girls walked out of the store. The male subject again approached them and proceeded to offer them money.
The incidents appear to be related.
