The Irvine Police Department advised Thursday that it continues to search for a suspect who may have harassed and exposed himself to children on multiple occasions in the Woodbridge area. Police are also urging any victims to call 9-1-1 immediately.
The latest crime reportedly occurred at about 3:45 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 26, near Eastshore and East Yale Loop. Authorities say a man exposed himself after asking a 12-year-old victim for the time.
Two weeks earlier, on Feb. 12, a man allegedly exposed himself to one high school student and harassed another at about 3:20 p.m., while the two 15-year-old girls were walking home near West Yale Loop and Warner Avenue.
