Prior to Ward's arrest police told us their top priority is catching the suspect and they have a warning for all parents.
Lt. Col. Gregory Sanders said, "Always if you can, take your kids to school or walk in pairs."

Police said Ward was possibly driving a compact, dark-colored Kia Sorrento or Hyundai Tucson with the driver side rear light broken.
