Man follows girls while masturbating in car

WIDEFIELD, Colo. — Widefield residents are left in fear after a man drives near young girls, while inappropriately touching himself.

The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office said it happened to two girls Tuesday evening in the Widefield area.

The man first started following a young teen and moved on to a second girl. We’re told he got out of his vehicle and approached her.

FOX21 sat down with one of the victims, who said she’s seen the same vehicle numerous times around the neighborhood.

“I was scared, because I didn’t know what was going to happen, and especially I didn’t know what would have happened if I didn’t go in that person’s yard,” the girl, who preferred to remain anonymous, said.

It’s this 15-year-old’s quick thinking that got her inside a home safe.

“We have a very family oriented neighborhood, and to know that someone is out there trying to perpetrate, basically trying to victimize these children, it’s a horrible thing to think,” the girl’s boyfriend’s mother, who preferred to remain anonymous, said.

Tuesday evening, the girl was walking to her boyfriend’s house when she noticed a man in a gold SUV following her down Quebec.

She said he would follow her and drive up ahead of her before pulling up right next to her, touching and exposing himself.

“And it was really weird because he looked at me and I looked at him and I just walked into a random person’s yard and I acted like it was mine,” the girl said.

“Had she panicked, had she frozen, who knows what could have happened,” the mother said.

Those close to her are proud of her actions, but they want to warn others, especially since two elementary schools and a high school are nearby.

“So, we have a lot of children walking up and down these streets all the time, and granted this is summer, but they’re out playing now,” the mother said.

She also hopes this incident serves as an example for teens.

“If a young lady doesn’t understand how to respond, it could escalate very quickly in a very negative manner,” the mother said.

The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office said they are looking for a white man between 25 and 30 years old with a medium build. He may be driving a gold Chevy Trailblazer with an orange sticker on the bottom of the rear window. If you know who this might be, call deputies at (719) 390-5555.
