The man, described as a Hispanic or white male in his 20s or 30s, is accused of approaching female students and asking to take photos of their feet. He's been seen multiple times in the neighborhood, at least twice driving a white car, and once while walking a dog.

No one has been harmed in the incidents, but the strange request has left students shaken.

School officials said that police are adding extra patrols in the neighborhood, but in the meantime, they discourage students from walking home alone.
