Man accused of trying to grab teen on way to school

- Orlando police say a 13-year-old girl was walking to Jackson Middle School Wednesday when a man exposed himself to her and then grabbed her.

Parents said they are going to be watching out for kids even more now.  Anna Nunez said, "It's just really sad this happened. It's scary."

Maldonado faced a judge Wednesday and was given $50,000 bond.
