Students, parents warned of squirt gun mystery man


ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – He’s still out there somewhere.

Police are looking for a man who has been approaching kids in the Heights, asking to videotape them while spraying them with a squirt gun.

At APD’s request, APS sent a warning letter home to parents in the Sandia and Eldorado High School districts.

APD says the man in his 20s has been approaching kids on Eubank – mostly girls aged 6 to 16.

Police and parents want to know what he’s up to.

“It’s definitely always a concern whatever awkward things that happen around schools,” said Benedicte Macias. “You wonder the motives of the person and what they have in mind.”

APD is testing the liquid he sprayed on two of the victims to make sure it’s water.

They won’t say how many victims have come forward. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
