Police Tuesday released a sketch of a man sought for repeatedly exposing himself to students near UCLA.
Four known “flashings” have occurred at varying times and days of the week between Aug. 30 and last Tuesday in the area of Midvale Avenue between Strathmore Drive and Gayley Avenue, according to the UCLA Police Department.
“In all four incidents, the suspect was seen masturbating in a vehicle after asking to speak with female pedestrians,” according to UCLA police Lt. Kevin Kilgore, who said all of the victims were UCLA students.
The suspect has been seen driving various newer-model vehicles, including a silver 2016-18 Volkswagen Passat, a possible GMC or Chevrolet silver extended-cab pickup truck, a red four-door sedan and a gray BMW, police said.
The suspect was described as black, 20-35 years old, with short black hair and a clean-shaven face. He was wearing a T-shirt and sweatpants or shorts. Anyone who recognizes him from the sketch released by investigators was urged to call UCLA Police Department detectives at (310) 825-9371 and reference case number 18-1757.
