We all want to keep our children safe. With that in mind, I want to share information with you about an incident that was reported to us this morning before school. Within a block from a Timberwood Middle School bus stop and within two blocks of Oaks Elementary, a parent observed an adult male engaged in public and inappropriate sexual conduct. The parent quickly contacted police and the man was apprehended. He did not approach any student but could have been seen by students.
KHOU reports that Brown "was hiding behind a parked car about 100 feet from the bus stop and masturbating while peering at the children through binoculars."
He admitted his actions to cops and was booked, KHOU says.
