A Wauwatosa woman told police that at about 12:30 p.m. Wednesday, as she was riding her bicycle past Christ King School, 2646 Swan Blvd., she spotted a man sitting in a car and pointing a camera at the school playground, which at the time was filled with children at lunch recess.
She told police she turned around to confront the man about what he was doing and he hurriedly drove off. She said he was no one she had ever seen from the neighborhood or the school community.
The woman, who said she has four children who either attend or have attended Christ King, immediately reported the encounter to the principal, who called police.
The woman described the suspicious subject as white, in his 20s or 30s, of medium height and build, with brown hair and a scruffy or unshaven look. He was driving a silver Toyota Camry with Wisconsin plates, she said.
Police traced the license number to an owner in Kiel and contacted the Manitowoc County Sheriff’s Department. Police also alerted staff at nearby McKinley Elementary School to the incident.
