Long Beach police seek indecent exposure suspect

August 29, 2012 | 10:41 am

Long Beach police are asking the public to help them locate a man wanted in connection with several incidents of indecent exposure to school-age girls.

Police say the man is suspected of exposing himself in public half a dozen times at various locations around the city in May and June. They issued their appeal this week because Long Beach schools are scheduled to be back in session Sept. 5.

"With school starting, the detectives are hoping that someone will come forward with some information," Sgt. Aaron Eaton said. 

In each case, the man was seen in an older model, four-door black sedan, possibly a Honda Accord, with black and silver rims and red or pink trim on the rims or tires. He is described as 20 to 40 years old, 5-feet-8 to 5-feet-10 and about 160 pounds with black hair.

He is reported to have pulled over beside the victims, who were middle- and high-school-aged girls, while they were waiting at bus stops or walking to school. In each case, he asked for directions, then exposed himself, police said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Long Beach Police Det. Louis Galvan at (562) 570-7368. Anonymous tips may be submitted at www.tipsoft.com.
