Rodriguez-Lott did not know the victim, Braveboy said.

“Unfortunately, there are people who prey on children. We will hold them accountable. However, our children need to be reminded about safety on a daily basis. As we prepare for the upcoming school year, we want them to protect themselves from these types of dangers,” she said.
