After interviewing Barrera and the girl, investigators said it appears he drove up to her and offered a ride to school. The girl did not immediately recognize Barrera as a neighbor, became alarmed and ran from him, police said.

Barrera is scheduled to appear in Aurora branch court at 9 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 26.
