Investigators Seek Public’s Assistance to Identify Indecent Exposure Suspect
MISSION VIEJO, Calif. (April 22, 2016) – On Friday April 22, 2016, Orange County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a report of a suspicious person in the creek west of Glen Yermo Elementary School in Mission Viejo.
When deputies arrived, at approximately 12 p.m., a white male was facing the school and appeared to have his pants pulled down, indecently exposing himself. As deputies approached, the suspect fled the area. After an exhaustive search by deputies and Orange County Sheriff’s air support unit, the suspect was not located.
The male white is described to be in his early 40’s, about 185 pounds, medium build, wearing a tan baseball hat, light blue shirt, dark basketball style shorts and dark colored shoes.
After further investigation, deputies learned of two additional indecent exposure incidents approximately one week ago in the same area in Mission Viejo. Both victims were females in grade school. The description given of the possible suspect appears to match the white male who fled the creek area near Glen Yermo Elementary on April 22, 2016.
Orange County Sheriff’s investigators responded to continue the investigation. A composite sketch was drawn based on the description given of the suspect.
Anyone with information about this person’s identity or information that may assist in the investigation is asked to call the Orange County Sheriff’s Department at 714-628-7170. Anonymous tips can be submitted to Orange County Crime Stoppers at 1-855-TIP-OCCS.
