SHEPHERDSVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Police are looking for a man who they say may have been stalking a 16-year-old girl. That girl and her mother spoke with WAVE 3, but asked to remain anonymous.

About a month ago a white man in his 50s or 60s with a long white beard showed up at her bus stop and tried to get her into his car.

"He starts putting stuff on the floor from the seats and I guess I gave him a funny look," said the girl. "He said I'm making room for you. So I got the idea that he was going to come up behind me and push me in the van."

She said she convinced him to leave and then her bus showed up, but he came back. She said he would sit outside of her house and wait for her.

"She said: 'Mom you didn't know everything'," said the girl's mother. "'He drives by our house in different colored vehicles in the dark he stops in front of our house.' I said: 'This is it. I have had enough.'"

He even went to the McDonald's in Bullitt County where she works.

"I said: 'Can I help you, sir?' and he said, 'Oh, there you are,'" said the girl.

They went to police who are looking into the case.

"Probably the main charge we would be look at at this point would be stalking because he's confronted her at the bus stop," said Captain Scotty McGaha with the Bullitt County Sheriff's Office. "He's driving by her house on numerous occasions and he's even went to the business location where she works at."

"He's old enough to be her grandfather," said her mom. "That's sick."

The girls described him as a heavy and tall white man in his 50s or 60s. She said he has a long thick white beard.

"It don't seem like anything you could ever do for him would make him happy," said the girl. "He's just the kind of person who would stay mad constantly if he didn't get what he wanted."

If you have any information you are asked to call the Bullitt County Sheriff's tip line at (502) 543-1262.
