An Atlanta school bus driver was arrested after allegedly breaking into a 10-year-old girl’s home, NY Post reported. He has since been released on bond which has raised serious concerns for the child’s mother. 

Gogineni Rayudu, 56, was taken into custody on Tuesday on charges of felony burglary and misdemeanor loitering but was quickly released back onto the streets after posting a $20,000 bond, Thursday, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. 

Cassie Cea, who is the mother of the young girl said she’s

“in shock”

by Rayudu’s release and has decided to take matters into her own hands by taking out a restraining order against Rayudu, the report said. According to charging documents obtained by The Post, Cea found Rayudu in her home Tuesday wearing gloves. He reportedly locked the door behind him and asked for Cea. When Cea asked what he was doing in her house Rayudu ran off. 

The child was not home at the time of the break-in but Cea is wondering what if she had been.

“I’m just really freaked out,”

Cea told the newspaper on Friday.

“He was definitely up to something bad — I just don’t know how bad it was,”

Cea told The Journal-Constitution.

 The child’s school bus driver had been reportedly asking her

“weird questions”

about her family and had visited her neighborhood

“several times”

before the incident, according to the neighborhood security. 

The Cobb County School District said they are working with the police to investigate this matter. Cea however, is contemplating whether her child should continue attending the school.

“My kid’s never getting on a bus again,”

Cea told the paper.

“I don’t even know if I want her in public school anymore, because are we taking this serious? Or are we just like, ‘Oh, he’s a weirdo’?”
