Disturbing behavior at some area schools sent police to the home of a San Francisco man Saturday, after students say that he tried to lure them into restrooms and his car.
26-year-old SF man Frederick Cayabyab faces four felony and six misdemeanor charges, after police say that on multiple occasions he tried to convince students at two South San Francisco schools to join him at a second location.
Last Thursday, Cayabyab allegedly tried to lure multiple teen girls into the restrooms of South San Francisco High School and El Camino High School, KRON4 reports.
On Friday afternoon between 3:30 and 5:30 police say that he was spotted at El Camino yet again, this time trying to talk even more female students into getting into his car.
Fortunately, all of the students Cayabyab allegedly tried to ensnare were able to escape the suspect and "report the incidents to either school officials or their parents," according to a press release sent by the South San Francisco Police Department.
It was an El Camino's assistant principal who led police to the suspect, KRON4 reports. The administrator "said Cayabyab seemed out of place," so he confronted the suspect, police say. At that point the aspiring teen-lurer fled...but not before the school staffer got the escape vehicle's license plate, which led police to Cayabyab's San Francisco home.
Cayabyab was arrested at 12:30 p.m. Saturday, and has been booked into Maguire County Correctional Facility in Redwood City with a bail set at $200,000.
According to the SSFPD, last week's incidents might not be Cayabyab's only alleged crimes, as "the investigation is continuing to determine if Cayabyab is responsible for a similar incident on August 17, 2015 near Grand and Orange Avenues" at Parkway Middle School.
Anyone with information on this case is urged to call the SSFPD at 650-877-8900.
