A man who exposed himself to a Palo Alto woman might have returned to her residence to photograph her, police said on Friday.
On Monday, July 23, while the woman was working in her apartment in the 300 block of Cowper Street near Everett Avenue at about 2 p.m. she saw a man standing outside her window with his pants pulled down, Palo Alto police said. The woman yelled at the man and he zipped up his pants and ran away.
But on Wednesday at 10:45 p.m., the woman heard rustling outside her window while she was in bed reading before going to sleep. She saw a flash through a gap in her blinds that she thought might be a camera going off and yelled. Police are unsure if the two incidents are related.
The man in the first incident is described as Hispanic and in his 30s, with black hair and dark eyes, 5-feet-5-inches tall and weighing about 150 pounds. He was wearing a dark, short-sleeved shirt.
