BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Officials are looking for a man who was accused of harassing a girl in central Bakersfield on Thursday.

On Jan. 31, officials said a 16-year-old girl said she was walking home from the area of Brundage Lane and Union Avenue when she was approached by a man.

The girl told officials that the suspected man spoke to her in Spanish but she could not understand him.
