Police released a sketch of the man who approached a woman outside the San Mateo Adult School on Thursday and offered her money to drive away with him after seemingly hitting on the woman.

About 6:15 p.m., a 19-year-old woman at the school went out to the parking lot for a break when a man in a nearby car got out and complimented her appearance, police said. She ignored the man and then he offered her money to drive away with him. She ignored that request and went back inside the school and reported the incident two hours later.

That incident followed two other incidents at San Mateo High School where a man approached two different teenage girls and tried to engage them in small talk while he sat in his car.

Police made an arrest in those two cases and do not believe that suspect Gary Fong was the same man from the San Mateo Adult School incident.

Police have released a sketch of the second suspect and describe him as an unshaven Asian male about 30 years old with a medium build and short or spiked hair. His vehicle is described as a dark blue or black foreign sedan.Bay Area NewsCrimeCrime & CourtsGary FongSan Mateo High SchoolSan Mateo Police Department
