The parents of a 15-year-old girl reported a man spied on their daughter and possibly taking pictures or video as she was using a public restroom in Eastlake on Thursday.
The parents said she was on her way to meet friends after summer school when she stopped to use the restroom at All Seasons Park next to Wolf Canyon Elementary School.
In an interview, the parents said their daughter did see the suspect because he was in the restroom before her.
They said as she was using the restroom, she looked up she saw a cell phone at the window overlooking her stall. She screamed and the suspect took off.
When the victim left the bathroom, she told her parents the man she had seen leaving the bathroom earlier was the suspect. She saw him run away, get into a car and leave.
"I think he was waiting for the right opportunity," said one of the parents in an interview. "It was empty, not too many people in the park. She was by herself; she walked into the bathroom by herself."
A father who was in the park said he did not see the suspect but did see the car. The teenager waited with him until police and her mother arrived on scene.
The parents filed a police report but no arrest has been made so far.
The victim's uncle, who has a daughter attending a nearby high school, said he and other parents in the area are concerned about the incident.
Chula Vista police said they are investigating but have received no similar complaints or reports.
The suspect is described to be in his 20s, around 5-foot-5, 125 pounds with a full beard. He had been driving a black car.
Residents in the area are asked to remain vigilant and report any additional information to the Chula Vista Police.
