ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Here’s some good news about a suspicious man spotted near a school bus stop in the East Mountains on Tuesday.
An 8-year-old girl waiting for the bus reported the man approached her, then slowed down and took off once her grandmother came outside.
The man saw the story on the news and called deputies to explain that he lives in the area. He realized he forgot his phone at home and turned around in the family’s driveway.
He apologized for scaring the girl.
