A North Carolina mother is warning others on Facebook after she says a man tried to have a sexual conversation with her and then tried to lure her 4-year-old son into a bathroom at the airport.
The incident took place at the Raleigh-Durham International Airport Observation Park on Oct. 13.
Kara Clark says the man started a conversation with her and offered her a glass of wine.
Clark told WTVD she was uncomfortable with the situation, but didn't want to cause a scene.
"I walked near my car to pour it out," she said. "Then I noticed him talking to my son."
Clark said she heard the man repeatedly telling her son he should go to the bathroom.
"He was telling my son, 'You need to go to the bathroom, you need to use the bathroom,' And my son said, 'No, I don't.' He said, 'Yes, you do. You do need to go to the bathroom.' And he asked him about three or four times that I heard and that's when I stepped in," Clark said.
She reported the incident to airport police, who told WTVD they are investigating and have increased their presence at the park.
The observation park overlooks the airport's runway and is intended to be a space for children to play and watch planes as they take off and land. It also hosts children's birthday parties, according to the airport website.
Clark also took to Facebook to warn others about the man who she says called himself Glenn and drove a silver pickup truck.
"This guy was at the RDU observation deck/playground this evening and tried to force a child to go into the bathroom with him," Clark wrote in a post including a photo of the man. "He was also telling women how he wanted to perform sexual acts to them. Please beware of this man."
The photo Clark posted shows an older white man with gray hair and glasses. In the photo, he is wearing a dark blue polo shirt with khaki shorts and sandals.
Clark's post warning about the man was shared more than 1,900 times in four days. In the post's comments she is blunt, calling the man "a f**king pervert."
"I just want to warn other parents to let people know that this predator is out here preying on people," she told WTVD. "And I feel like he targeted me because I am a single mom."
