Detectives with the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office Special Victims’ Unit are seeking a 34-year old man for trespassing on school property following two “suspicious incidents” at Creekside High School earlier this week. The suspect is identified as Keith Kelvin Grant, 34, of Orange Park.
An active arrest warrant was issued Thursday afternoon for Grant for two counts of trespassing on school grounds. Grant is described as a black male, 5’10” tall and 179 pounds.
The two incidents occurred Monday afternoon, a news release said.
The first occurred shortly before 5 p.m. when the suspect drove into the student parking lot and stopped to talk to a female student. The suspect asked the student for directions to a nearby park and then requested she show him where the park was. The girl advised the suspect he could follow her in his car and she asked a friend to follow them. Once at the park, the suspect asked if there was a quieter place they could go, which caused concern to the girl and she drove away.
The second incident occurred at 6 p.m. when the suspect approached another female student in the parking lot and asked if she or any of her friends would like to go to a party. The student told the man she was 17 and the suspect replied that he was 21. The suspect attempted to get the student’s phone number but she refused and asked for his. She then left the area and reported the incident to school officials and then to the School Resource Deputy the following day.
Authorities said an investigation revealed the suspect had no legitimate reason to be on school property and detectives soon after obtained an arrest warrant for Grant.
Anyone with any information on Grant’s whereabouts is asked to contact the Sheriff’s Office at 824-8304. To remain anonymous and possibly be eligible for a cash reward, call CrimeStoppers of N.E. Florida at 1-888-277-8477.
