Here's the definition of creepy: A 55-year old man talking to little girls who are waiting for the school bus and even holding one girl's hand.  That's what deputies say they saw while watching Enrique Lopez Torres.

A school bus driver called deputies after pulling up to a bus stop in Fallbrook on September 9 and seeing a little girl running to the bus crying. The 11-year old girl reported that a man had walked up to her while she was standing outside around 7 a.m. on Clemmens Lane. The man started talking to her and then held her hand, deputies said. When the bus arrived the man let the girl go. 

So, the very next day, a detective drove to a bus stop on West Clemmens Lane at the same time and waited. He said he saw a man out in front of an apartment complex at 233 W. Clemmens Lane "watching and waving" at the little girls at the bus stop, according to deputies.

Deputies arrested Torres on charges of annoying and/or molesting a child. They were granted a search warrant for his home. Remember our creepy meter? Get ready.

Detectives report finding Polaroid pictures on the suspect's night stand showing little girls between the ages of 10 and 15. Some of the girls are undressed and some are engaged in sex acts with the suspect, deputies said.

They re-booked Torres on 25 counts of child porn and three counts of lewd act with a child. Fearing there may be other victims, deputies released a number of booking photos of Torres over the last 10 years. He has lived in Downey, on Kellogg Drive in San Marcos and may have lived in Escondido.
