• At 10:52 p.m. a mother relayed her son’s confrontation with an aggressive man. She stated her son had been heading to his mentee’s house when he noticed a truck following him. The son stopped, thinking perhaps it was someone he knew. The other driver began yelling profanity-laced statements about not stalking houses, as well as threats of beating or shooting the boy. When the son tried to respond, the man drove off.

A deputy found a vehicle matching the son’s description, but didn’t make contact with anyone. The man called the sheriff’s department at 12:07 a.m., stating the boy was parked in front of a house with his lights off.
