WHEATON, Ill. — A Villa Park man currently on probation for possession of child porn is accused of loitering near an Elmhurst high school on at least three occasions, prosecutors in DuPage County said.
The arrest comes after Elmhurst police said the department received several reports of young girls being watched and followed by a man while leaving school. Police identified the suspect as 36-year-old Yuusef Husain.
