Riverdale Man Charged With Stalking Girl at 58th Ave. Bus Stop

Narciso Bonilla, 33, was arrested on Friday.

Prince George's County Police say a Riverdale man was arrested last week after allegedly stalking a young girl while she waited for a school bus.

Narciso Bonilla, 33, of the 6100 block of Kenilworth Ave., was taken into custody Friday and charged with stalking and harrassment.

According to the PGPD, Bonilla watched a 13-year-old girl last week for several days in a row as she stood at her bus stop in the 5800 block of 58th Avenue in Riverdale. 

Police said he honked his horn and waved, approached the girl to speak with her, and attempted to give her a rose. At one point, the girl reportedly became frightened and ran to a fire station for help.

Detectives set up a surveillance operation and witnessed Bonilla stalking the girl, police said, at which point he was placed under arrest.

Thank God the Riverdale Heights Volunteer Fire House was there for the girl to run to. I hope the county remembers that next time they talk about closing it down because of budget cuts. So glad the county has put paid firefighters back there during the day too. Very smart girl. glad she was able to get away.

Good to hear that this young lady knew what to do; all parents should instruct their children on how to act if they think somone is watching them, following them, etc. However, it's very sad we can't even send our kids to school without having to worry about incidents like this.
