San Leandro police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a man who allegedly exposed himself to a female student while she was walking to Bancroft Middle School this morning. Police said that at about 7:50 a.m. the man called the student, who didn’t know him, over to a black sedan that was parked in the 1400 block of Bancroft Avenue, several blocks away from the middle school, which is located at 1150 Bancroft Ave.
When the student looked inside the car, she saw the suspect seated in the driver’s seat exposing himself to her, police said. The girl quickly ran to Bancroft Middle School and reported the incident to school authorities, who then notified police. Responding officers checked the area for the suspect and his vehicle but were unable to locate him and concluded that he had driven off before they arrived, police said.
Authorities said the suspect is described as a white or Hispanic male in his mid-20s with an average build and a beard. He was wearing a red and black cap and prescription-style glasses. Police said school resource officers and detectives are working closely with Bancroft Middle School staff members to try to identify any other students who may have witnessed the incident or who may have been approached by the same suspect.
San Leandro police spokesman Lt. Robert McManus said, “We are thankful that the girl ran away, sought help from school staff and was not harmed in this incident. She did the right thing.” Police said detectives will be checking the area for video surveillance cameras to try to help them identify the suspect.
