Man bursts into girls’ bathroom at high school and offers needles to children, police say
A mysterious man suddenly appeared in a high school girls’ bathroom and offered a student hypodermic needles, Maine police said.
Police officers were called to King Middle School in Portland around 8:50 a.m. Monday, May 15, because of a “suspicious” man in the building, according to the Portland Police Department.
The 43-year-old Portland resident is accused of resisting arrest after officers found him at one of the entrances to the school, police said in a May 16 press release.
According to authorities, he was arrested on charges of criminal trespass, invasion of privacy and refusal to submit to arrest or detention and physical assault.
It’s unclear how or why the man entered the school and offered the girl needles.
Hypodermic needles are used in addition to syringes to inject substances into the skin.
McClatchy News reached out to Portland Public School officials for comment on May 16 and did not immediately receive a response.
