This is scary.

A teenage girl was walking home from work yesterday late afternoon when she was approached by an unknown man. According to our news partners, Local 4 News, he asked her for directions, but it was what he was doing that has her unnerved.

He was touching himself as he was behind the wheel. The teen and her mother spoke with Local 4 News exclusively about the ordeal. They say they are angry, scared, but thankful this did not get any worse than it already is.

The teen says she is stunned this happened, especially considering there’s a sheriff that lives on her street. Her mother’s message to other parents is have this talk with your young girls so, they know how to respond.
