SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — A man was arrested for multiple incidents involving attempts to lure juvenile victims in South San Francisco last Friday.
The man, Frederick Cayabyab, was reportedly trying to lure female high school students into his vehicle between 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. before his arrest on Friday at El Camino High School, according to South San Francisco police.
Cayabyab, 26, also attempted to lure additional victims into restrooms at South San Francisco High School and El Camino High School on Thursday, police said.
All of the victims were able to safely get away from Cayabyab and report the incidents to either school officials or their parents.
South San Francisco police were able to catch Cayabyab after receiving an essential tip from an assistant principal at El Camino High School who spotted the suspect at about 5:30 p.m. on Friday on the El Camino High School campus.
The assistant principal said Cayabyab seemed out of place so he confronted Cayabyab. Cayabyab fled the school in a vehicle, which the assistant principal was able to obtain the license plate number of, according to police.
Police followed up on the license plate number, which led them to Cayabyab’s home in San Francisco.
Police found and arrested him at about 12:30 p.m., one day after the reports.
Cayabyab was arrested on suspicion of four felony and six misdemeanor child annoyance-related incidents and booked into the Maguire County Correctional Facility in Redwood City, according to police.
Police determined Cayabyab to be responsible for all of the reported incidents on Thursday and are currently conducting investigations to determine whether Cayabyab was also responsible for a similar incident that occurred on Aug. 17 at Parkway Middle School.
