LANCASTER – A man jumped a fence onto a Lancaster elementary school campus yesterday and fondled three female students then fled, sparking a lengthy search by sheriff’s deputies of the school and surrounding neighborhood, officials said. The suspect approached four female students in a classroom at Sierra Elementary School, 747 W. Avenue J-12, before classes began this morning. The man approached the group of students and grabbed one victim and fondled her chest and genital area. He then touched two of the other students in the same manner, Capt. Joe L. Gutierrez of the Lancaster Sheriff’s Station said. The victims were all 7 years old, said Sgt. Diane Hecht of the Sheriff’s Headquarters Bureau. The man fled when a teacher’s aide came from around the corner of the classroom building, he said. The principal tried to follow the suspect, but lost sight of him. The suspect was described as being in his early 20s, 5 feet 8 inches tall, weighing 150 to 170 pounds. He had black hair and brown eyes and was wearing a black T-shirt with brown pants. Detectives with the sheriff’s Special Victims Bureau investigated the possibility that the suspect had committed similar acts recently, Gutierrez said. One incident occurred at the same school, and another last week occurred at the Mariposa Elementary School, according to KCAL9. One parent told KCAL she was not surprised at how easily a person could wander into a classroom. “You know what? It was bound to happen. It was,” Georgina Delatorre said. “All the gates are open … when school’s out they open every single gate. There’s nobody watching the kids. I mean, these bad guys, they notice that.” last_img read more

‘There are massive things to come from Rooney,’ Neville tells talkSPORT

first_imgPhil Neville believes Wayne Rooney’s return to Everton will reinvigorate his career.Rooney rejoined his boyhood club for an undisclosed fee last week after 13 years at Manchester United.Doubts have been expressed about whether he can recapture his best form at Goodison Park, with the 31-year-old having struggled to impress in recent seasons.Neville, though, is convinced his former United teammate is going to be a big success in his second spell at Everton.“I think there are massive things to come from Wayne Rooney,” Neville, who played for both clubs, told talkSPORT.“Having watched him over the last 12 months and the lack of match action he has got, this could be the move that gives his career a kick on.”Rooney has traded places with Romelu Lukaku, with the Belgian striker moving to United in a £75m deal, and Neville believes it’s good business by both his old teams.“It is good for both clubs,” said.“What Jose [Mourinho] likes in all the teams he has managed is a target man and you think maybe Jose was stopping Lukaku going to Chelsea to make them stronger and he is the best target man around.“Everton have got unbelievable money,  invested that money really well, and I think both parties will be happy.”last_img read more
