Shahriar Bakhtiarizadeh, 52, of Chesterfield County, was arrested and charged
with misdemeanor stalking in connection with the case.
The charge stems from a July 16 incident. The alleged victim, a 10-year-old
girl, was walking with her younger brother to the Powhatan Community Pool, when
she says a man in a van approached her and attempted to persuade her to enter
"She said he kept pulling to the curb and pulling away, pulling to the
curb and talking to her. And she stopped to fix her sandal, and he pulled to
the curb and parked," the girl's mother Stacey Winters told 8News.
Police say the man made several attempts to persuade the girl to enter his
vehicle, but at no time did he leave his vehicle or make contact with the girl.
