It happened at about 1:40 p.m. at Fairgrove Elementary School.

According to police, school staff reported that a man was seen jumping the fence and walking onto the rear field of the campus. When staff members confronted the man on the field, he reportedly ran off, jumping back over the fence and into a nearby neighborhood.
