The little girl is a student at Southridge Elementary. Parents with students at the school were notified about the incident by email.READ MORE: Arlington Father Shawn Andrew Kuhleman 1 Of 2 Killed In Chemical Incident At Plant Near Houston
One father said he was outside of the school just after the incident happened. “Usually the parents are sitting out here with the kids, so that’s why it kind of struck me as strange that that would happen. Because usually it’s all elementary kids, from five [years old] on up to eight or nine.”
The male suspect apparently ran off right away. Police only have a very vague description of the suspect and no one saw which direction he ran or if he got into a vehicle.
Anyone with information about the incident or the suspect is asked to call the Lewisville Police Department at 972-219-3600 or the TIPS line at 972-219-TIPS (8477). Cell phone users can send an anonymous tip by texting “TipLPD” and a message to 847411.MORE NEWS: Kaufman County Deputy On Administrative Leave Pending Investigation Into Handling Of Troubled Teen
