Accused flasher on moped identified as registered sex offender
Gerary Gornick, 50, is accused of exposing himself to the girl in August.
After a composite sketch was released earlier this month, state parole agents identified Gornick as a possible suspect because he was recently arrested for drug possession on his moped.
“It was the description of the man on a moped and his behavior that made a parole officer curious about Gornick,” said Det. Luz Montero of the LAPD's Mission station. “And sure enough, the GPS data from an ankle bracelet put Gornick at the time and place of the crime.
Gornick was arrested Sept. 22 on an unrelated methamphetamine charge. He was riding his moped at that time and remains in County Jail.
"He’ll face another sex-related charge on his already established criminal history,” he said. “Our victim, her mom, the parole agent and technology all played an important role in identifying this dangerous predator before he could physically harm someone.”
