The detective just came by. He made contact with the man. He lives about a block and a half away. He was open about what happend, even told the detective that he asked if he could take Allyssa home. He said that he didn't mean it seriously. He was just trying to say that she is cute. The detective told him that in this day and age, that is scary, and it took a lot of talking but the man understood that he said something inappropriate, and the detective doesn't think he is offended any more (who wouldn't be offended if they were accused of inticing a child?!). This does not mean that the man is not a sex offender. If he is, it means that now he knows that the police are aware of him. The detective told me to keep my eyes open for him still and call him if anything else happens. He also allerted the Raymondville and Lyford (the next town over) schools. It is possible that the man was just trying to say Allyssa is cute, but the detective said to still be careful, but that he thought that I did not have to worry.
Hopefully that will end this. The old man probably doesn't even know that he's talked to me twice. I wouldn't have thought anything of it if it wasn't the second time. The man did not seem threatening, but would a seasoned sex offender seem threathening? Probably not if he can get kids to come to him.
All in all, the detective thinks that this will be the end of it. All you moms out there, if you haven't done it already, check the list of registered sex offenders in your area!
