Jose Delacruz-Davalos, 46, detained by police in the course of investigating a complaint about possible child enticement, has been booked for disorderly conduct. Police say there was no evidence of enticement.
The case first came to light on Tuesday when police received a report of an incident that happened on Monday, August 18th.
Officers were called to the 4200 block of South 25th Street. The man who called them told the officers that his teenage daughters had been walking to a bus stop at 27th and I streets on Monday afternoon when they were approached by a man who started talking to them. The girls ran away.
On Tuesday morning, one of those girls reported an encounter with the same man and she said he grabbed her wrist. She pulled away and ran.
Police found the suspect near the 4200 block of South 26th Street and took him into custody.
He was initially booked on warrants for failing to pay child support and later booked for disorderly conduct as police dismissed allegations of child enticement.
