PHOENIX — A man accused of trying to grab a teenage girl at a Phoenix bus
stop and chasing after her with a baseball bat has been sentenced to five years
Maricopa County prosecutors said 38-year-old Tommy Andrade also was sentenced
Tuesday to lifetime probation.
Andrade pleaded no contest to luring a minor for sexual exploitation,
attempt to commit aggravated assault and disorderly conduct.
Phoenix police said the 14-year-old girl saw the suspect holding a bat and
sitting on a bench last Oct. 25.
The girl told police Andrade reached out and tried to grab her hand as she
walked to the bus stop.
She ran and Andrade followed her with the bat.
The teen flagged down a driver, who let her get into the car.
