Man in Underwear Only Approaches Students

Police are investigating after they say a man wearing only underwear approached a group of 5th grade students in Valley Center.

Officials at Valley Center Intermediate School say the man approached the students Wednesday afternoon when they were outside on the tennis courts during a physical education class, and asked them to leave the fenced area and come with him. The students notified teachers, who informed school officials and police.

An alert was sent out to parents about the incident.

According to Valley Center Police Chief Mark Hephner, police did not find anyone that fit the description of the man but officer patrols around the school will be increased for the rest of the week.
