SACRAMENTO – The Sacramento Police Department is asking for the community’s help in locating a serial flasher.
Police say between Jan. 28 and 31, one man indecently exposed himself three different times.
"Approaching juveniles, while approaching them he’s also been touching himself, exposing himself," said Sacramento Police Officer Marcus Basquez.
Officers report the suspect, described as a 25- to 30-year-old white man with a mustache, is typically in the driver’s seat of an older white, four-door sedan. He makes inappropriate comments to the victim or victims before exposing himself.
The first report happened on Monday, Jan. 28 near Vallejo Way and Riverside Boulevard in Land Park.
The second incident was on the following Wednesday, on Gloria Drive near John F. Kennedy High School in the pocket.
"It is pretty shocking because we have the gated community down here in Greenhaven and Pocket and it’s a pretty family oriented neighborhood, so," said Baltazar Lara, whose younger brother attends John F. Kennedy High School.
The third sighting was the next day, near Freeport Boulevard and 11th Avenue, just down the block from C.K. McClatchy High School. That prompted the school’s principal to send out a robocall warning to parents.
"There’s safety in numbers, inform your students to avoid walking alone to and from school," the call said.
Its advice police are echoing.
"If someone calls you to their car, just run and go the other way," Basquez said.
Investigators with the police department are asking anyone with information regarding these indecent exposure incidents to contact them at 916-808-5471 or Sacramento Valley Crime Stoppers at 916-443-HELP (4357) or submit an anonymous tip using the free P3 Tips smartphone app. Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward up to $1,000.
