Police in Menlo Park are trying to identify a man who exposed himself to a 10-year-old girl on Friday morning. At about 7:45 a.m., a man in his 30s approached the girl near Windermere Avenue and Ivy Drive, just a few blocks from Bell Haven Elementary School, Menlo Park police spokeswoman Nicole Acker said.
Speaking Spanish, the man asked the girl if she knew the janitor who worked at her school, police said. When the girl said no, the suspect pulled down his pants and exposed himself, then told the girl not to tell anyone or he would do something to her, according to police. The victim ran toward her school and reported the incident. The suspect was last seen driving a white van east on Chilco Street.
He was described as a heavyset Hispanic man with an unshaven face and was last seen wearing a white T-shirt, blue pants and a black baseball hat. Police are reminding parents to talk with their children about being aware of their surroundings. Children should not talk to people they don’t know and contact police when they observe something out of the ordinary.
