Palo Alto police are looking for a man who allegedly exposed himself to two women on Tuesday, Dec. 2, according to a police department press release.
At about 6:15 p.m., police received a 911 call from a woman who reported that at about 5 p.m., a man approached her and another woman on foot, exposed his penis, and invited them to look at it. Officers responded to the scene at the corner of Greer Road and Channing Avenue, but could not locate the man.
Investigators said the women, both in their 80s, were walking eastbound on the sidewalk of the 1800 block of Channing Avenue when they stopped briefly at the intersection of Channing Avenue and Greer Road, when the man approached them. After one of the women told the man that she was going to call police, he fled.
The man, described as a fair-skinned white male in his late teens with a slight build, was reportedly last seen running eastbound on Channing Avenue. He was wearing a dark colored, hooded jacket or sweatshirt.
Police do not anticipate the release of a sketch related to this incident, and do not believe that this incident is related to any of the three indecent exposure cases that occurred in early October.
Anyone with information pertaining to this case is asked to call the 24-hour dispatch center at 650-329-2413. Anonymous tips can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or sent via text message or voice mail to 650-383-8984.
