News 6 talked to concerned parents with children attending a neighborhood elementary school.

"We've been here three years and never heard of anything like this, so now I'm kind of worried" said Cheryl Burch, John Turner Elementary School parent. "I'm nervous since both of my kids ride their bikes to school, to and from. I'll have to go home and have a long talk with her and her sister about what to do and make sure they're cautious and ride with friends"

The suspect has been known to target women who were outside doing yard work between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m., according to a release.

The suspect was described as a heavy-set younger man with a dark complexion standing between 5 feet 7 inches tall and 5 feet 8 inches tall. He was also described as having a round-shaped face.
