A 15-year-old girl was walking home from Yorktown High School yesterday afternoon when a man reportedly “ran up to her and grabbed her inappropriately.”

Last night, Yorktown principal Raymond Pasi sent the following email to parents regarding the incident.

Dear Parents and Guardians:

At approximately 3:45 pm today a 15 year old student from Yorktown was approached by a man who ran up to her and grabbed her inappropriately and then ran away. The incident occurred in the 2600 block of Florida Street. The suspect is described as a white male in his 20’s, wearing a black shirt and black shorts.

The student reported the incident to her father and he contacted the school administration. Yorktown staff immediately contacted the police who are now investigating.

We are grateful that the student was not physically injured.

The is a good time for all of us to remind students about some important steps they should always take to ensure their continued safety when they are out in the community, and even take time to role play possible situations with them.

Please do not hesitate to call me if you have any questions.


Raymond Pasi, Principal
Yorktown High School
