FORT WORTH _ A man arrested Wednesday afternoon near a south Fort Worth elementary school after he was observed near the campus in a car outfitted with police gear has been identified as Geronimo Molina of Fort Worth, police and jail reports state.

Molina was in the Manfield Jail Thursday with bail set at $6,587.

The 44-year-old Fort Worth man faces a charge of failure to identify (fugitive intent to give false information) in the incident. He also had an arrest warrant on suspicion of assault causing bodily injury/family member and two other traffic warrants out of Arlington.

Officers were called at 3 p.m. to Hubbard Heights Elementary School, 1333 Spurgeon St., to investigate a report of a suspicious person. Police caught the man watching children from a black Ford Crown Victoria, similar to those used by police, officers said in their report.

The car was equipped with a video camera on a mirror and police lights on back. The vehicle had been "parked at (the) school for the past three days," the report states.

Authorities impounded the 2004 Ford Crown Victoria.

Police did not provide any additional information.
