Police: No 'human traffickers' at Clyde Park, suspicious person has mental health issues

CLYDE, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) - Police say a suspicious person seen approaching people at the city park in Clyde has mental health issues and is not part of a human trafficking operation.

The suspect, according to a social media post, has been seen at the park for several days and has approached multiple patrons. 

"This individual is known to our agency and has mental health issues. He speaks limited English as he is not from the United States. The driver of the car is his mother, as she would drop him off at the park, or wait for him in her vehicle," the social media post states. 

Apparently, social media rumors have clamied this man and the driver of the car are "human traffickers", but police say this is not the case.

They agree that although this individual can come off as "intimidating and aggressive when approaching people due to his mental health issues," he has posed no issues to the public and has shown no history of being violent. 

His mother has been asked to stay with him at the park and he will be banned from the area if his aggressive behavior continues. 

Anyone with questions or comments on this situation can contact the Clyde Police Department at (325) 893-4111.
