Palo Alto police have released a suspect sketch after two young girls were the victims of indecent exposures about a half-mile apart earlier this week. Shortly after 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, a 10-year-old girl was out walking her dog near Byron Street and Seale Avenue between Jordan Middle School and Walter Hays Elementary School, police said.
A suspect in a four-door Volvo sedan pulled up next to her and asked her if she wanted to touch his penis. She noticed that his genitals were exposed and ran home to tell her parents what happened, police said. Officers are looking into whether the case involved the same suspect who pulled up next to a 14-year-old girl at 4:47 p.m. Monday in the 1600 block of Bryant Street, near Castillija School, a middle and high school for girls.
When the girl turned and looked inside that suspect’s navy blue pickup truck, she saw that his penis was out and he was masturbating while making eye contact with her, police said. He did not speak to her and drove away. While the description of the cars was different in each case, police said the suspect himself had a similar physical description.
He was described as a white man in his late 20s to mid 30s with short brown hair and a medium build, police said. In Monday’s incident, the suspect was wearing a black V-neck T-shirt and black aviator-style sunglasses and on Tuesday the suspect was wearing a black-and-white checkered shirt with a white collar, police said.
Officers have increased patrols in areas where students walk to school and are conducting surveillance in the area where the exposures happened to try to locate a suspect.
