Mountain View police are reporting two indecent exposure incidents that involved the same suspect and victim about 15 months apart. The most recent incident occurred on Monday at around 3:30 p.m. as the victim, a 13-year-old girl, was walking home from Crittenden School in the 100 block of North Rengstorff Avenue, police spokeswoman Liz Wylie said.
The girl said a man pulled up in a red Jeep, possibly a Cherokee, and exposed himself as he sat in the vehicle. He was wearing a black baseball cap, gray T-shirt, blue shorts and sunglasses. He had medium-length gray hair and a gray mustache, Wylie said.The girl reported the incident to her parents and the school, and school officials notified police, Wylie said.
In February 2011, a man in his 50s with a gray mustache and gray hair covering his ears pulled alongside the same girl as she walked home from school near the Whisman Sports Pavilion on Middlefield Road, Wylie said. The man, who was wearing a black baseball cap and sunglasses, a gray T-shirt and blue shorts and was driving a red Jeep, possibly a Cherokee, exposed himself as he sat in the vehicle. The girl ran away and never reported the incident to police, her parents or her school, Wylie said.
The suspect in both incidents appears to be the same man, Wylie said. In neither incident did the suspect try to lure the girl into his car or approach her, Wylie said. A police artist is composing a sketch of the suspect that will be released to the public, and police are actively investigating the incidents, Wylie said. Police believe the man might have exposed himself to other students or adult females because many such incidents are not reported.
