CHULA VISTA, Calif. (KGTV) -- The mother of a South Bay teen says her 16-year-old son had a disturbing encounter at a store parking lot in Eastlake.
Suher Haidar said a man offered her son money for a sexual act as her son was leaving the Walmart on Eastlake Parkway on Monday.
"It's just gross," Haidar said. "That's the only way I can explain it."
She said her son was walking to his car in the store parking lot when a man in a pickup truck waved him down to get his attention. He was trying to make small talk when the conversation shifted to the disturbing proposition. That's when her son pulled out his phone and recorded the encounter. The man drove away after her son began yelling at him and recording him.
"My son was just disgusted, and he did what he had to do," Haidar said. "His father and I are really proud of him for standing up for himself and being quick to pull out his phone."
She posted her son's video on social media, and several people have commented to say the same person tried to start a conversation with their teenage sons.
The Chula Vista Police Department says they are investigating the incident. They ask anyone with information on the case or has had a similar experience to call CVPD or Crime Stoppers.
