“Their reports (children – ed.) showed that a young man had been coming to the park for two days and had been following children, accosting them and taking pictures of them. He was particularly interested in girls. This was confirmed by two of them, aged 11 and 14. When they asked the man why he was doing it, he replied that he “wanted to look because he likes girls of this age” and despite their requests, he did not stop, “the statement of the guard who intervened was quoted in the message.
