Police: Man inappropriately touched girl at Raleigh bus stop

Posted May 24, 2016

— Raleigh police are searching for a man who reportedly touched a 14-year-old girl inappropriately Tuesday morning.

Authorities said the girl was waiting at a school bus stop on Brockton Drive at about 6 a.m. when she was approached by a man who made lewd remarks and touched her inappropriately.

The girl was not injured and reported the incident when she arrived at school.

The suspect is described as a dark-skinned black man in his 30s or 40s with a short beard and possibly a moustache. He has small eyes and a chip in an upper left front tooth, police said.

The man was last seen walking north on Hoyle Drive and was wearing a black hoodie with black or blue baggy pants, authorities said.

One woman who has lived in the area for eight years said she always sees children waiting for the bus, but has never heard of anything like this happening.

Anybody with information is asked to call Raleigh Crime Stoppers at 919-834-4357.

    yes I am more interested in making a political statement against people who hate against another group of people for their own agenda oops I meant the government controlled medias agenda because they blindly follow and believe every little "Fact" that comes across their facebook feed... and btw I made my sarcastic comments in reply to another ignorant pro HB2 person that decided after my remark they needed to remove their own comment.....but hey good job on HB2 did a fine job of keeping this little girl safe from predators.....oh yea I forgot predators are predators and unless you catch them in the act they can strike anywhere anytime anyplace.....yet all of the pro hb2 people feel like bathrooms are the only place that it happens.....news flash TG people just want to use the bathroom......

    What a wretched thing to say! This story has nothing to do with the HB2 law. This is about a terrible incident that happened to a child. Why drag politics and sarcasm into it? Do you even care about the girl, or are you just concerned with yet again making a political statement? Sexual predators are predators are predators. No law will stop them, but your inability to see past your blinded hate of anyone who doesn't support your view just shows how callous you are. This is a terrible thing to happen to this girl, and thankfully, she was not seriously hurt. My guess is that had this been a TG teen who had been touched at the bus stop, you would be all over that, crying "hate" crime and all the such.

    There are 17 states and 200 cities that explicitly permit transgender people to use whatever bathroom they want and there has been no increase in sexual assault of any kind.

    Police departments in Iowa, Hawaii, Colorado, Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Texas have gone on record stating that these non-discrimination ordinances do not result in an increase in the number of reported rapes or sexual assaults.

    You haven't seen evidence of transgenders being assaulted in restrooms because you have not looked. A quick Google search is all it takes.
    Here is an article about a 22 year old trans lady that was beaten in a Mc Donalds restroom.

    Here is one where the trans teen was assaulted in a high school bathroom-

    Need more evidence?
    Meanwhile, here is the evidence of trans people doing the assaulting-

    As much as you must dislike girls and women, they deserve a place to pee without perverts looking to molest or rape. The fact that there are men that are willing to do this in public further proves what rational people know- Predators are out there and looking for any access to rape and molest.
    Why should it be made easier for them to do that in bathrooms, locker-rooms designed for women when the very few gender-confused men that exist could use the restrooms and locker rooms designed for their gender.
    I have yet to have seen ANY Proof that transgenders have been harassed or assaulted, and there has been no news stories here in NC of either.
    We just need to go back to the way things were before this push to make bathrooms gender-neutral
