Friday afternoon, a similar incident occurred involving the girl’s brother, police said. According to police, the boy was about to leave the bus when the man flagged it down. He told the driver he was there to pick up the boy, but was denied because he was not on the authorized list to pick up the child, WPIX reported.
Around 7 p.m., the 8-year-old said she saw the man on the second step of her residence, taking a photograph of the house, police said.
On Saturday morning, the boy was allegedly approached by the man. Later that day, the girl found the note in the family mailbox, WPIX reported.
