Reported incidents occurred in coastal north San Diego County
San Diego County CA— The Sheriff’s Department is looking for additional people to come forward that may have been victims of indecent exposure or inappropriate touching in the North County coastal areas.
On May 6, 2017, a Hispanic male adult standing next to a white delivery van in the 4000 block of Vista De La Tierra, in Solana Beach, grabbed the buttocks of a female pedestrian as she walked past him. The victim was able to run away and was not injured.
On May 8, 2017, a white delivery van drove slowly past a female jogger several times in the 17000 block of El Vuelo, in Rancho Santa Fe. As the jogger ran past the van that had stopped, she saw the Hispanic male adult driver expose himself. The jogger was able to run across the street as the suspect stepped out of the van with his pants down to his knees.
The Sheriff’s Department believes the same suspect is responsible for both incidents and that an arrest is imminent.
The suspect is further described as 5’5″ to 5’8″ in height, weighing 150 to 200 pounds, 20 to 30 years old, black hair and clean shaven. The van is further described as a newer white, delivery-type van with no windows on the sides similar to the van in the photos above.
If you have any information about these cases or have been the victim of similar crimes, please call the Sheriff’s Sexual Assault Unit at (858) 974-2316 during business hours.
