Indecent Exposure Case
Los Angeles police Wednesday night were seeking people who may have been victimized by a man arrested on suspicion of indecent exposure and lewd conduct involving underage girls.

Roderico Arael Lopez, 28, allegedly cruised in his red van across the San Fernando Valley, where he exposed himself to girls walking to school, the Los Angeles Police Department said.

The LAPD said officers had received 11 reports of a man exposing himself in the area in recent months.  Lopez was arrested Tuesday.

He is described as Latino, about 5 feet 6, weighing 160 pounds with short hair. He was being held in lieu of $20,000 bail and on an immigration hold, the LAPD said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Det. Monica McPartland at (818) 834-3115.
