LUBBOCK,TX-A Lubbock father said his needs are being neglected by the Lubbock police department, after his daughter was almost kidnapped by the same man twice. 

On May 13th, 14-year-old Danisha Lewis was walking a block and a half from her bus stop on 52nd and Utica, to her home in central Lubbock.

She told us, she was stopped by a man in a red GMC pick-up.

He told Danisha he knew her mother and that he was supposed to take her home that day.

Danisha told the man no, but he continued. 

Finally, she made it home. 

Her father, Clarence Lewis, said once he got home he called the police; but after waiting, no one showed up. 

Lewis canceled the call and tried police again the next day. 

He said this time, the police filed a report. 

Lewis said things calmed down, until a week later; when his daughter was again approached by the same man. 

This time Lewis said his ex-wife was home, and she followed the car to where the man lived; just 5 houses down from Danisha. 

He said, she told him to leave their daughter alone.

The man's reply was that he always talks to 12 and 13 years old girls walking down the street.

Lewis said, they once again called the police and this time they spoke to the man directly. 

Sergeant Jason Lewis with the Lubbock police department said officers did not have enough evidence that would warrant an arrest; but that the department is still investigating. 

But this Lubbock father said it is too late, he has lost his faith in our local officers. 

Lewis said he and his ex-wife are walking their daughter to and from the bus stop from now until the investigation is over.
