A Jurupa Valley girl on her way to school Friday encountered a man who pretended to need her assistance but then flashed her, prompting authorities to seek the public’s assistance identifying the suspect.

The victim, whose name was not disclosed, was walking in the 4000 block of Opal Street about 9:15 a.m. when an unknown man parked an SUV nearby and approached her, according to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.

The suspect “asked the girl for directions and then exposed himself to her,” sheriff’s Sgt. Tyson Voss said.

The girl fled, heading to her campus, where she reported the encounter to staff, who in turn notified the deputy assigned to the school as a resource officer, according to Voss.

The flasher was not located.

He was described as Hispanic, 25 to 30 years old, with a beard and mustache, wearing a blue shirt with a black collar and dark-colored pants.

The suspect was driving a newer model white Ford Flex with a black roof, Voss said.

Anyone with information was asked to call the sheriff’s Jurupa Valley Station at 951-955-2600.
