Community Assistance. An Idecent Exposure Suspect may be targeting Bus Stops. Only one incident reported to date.

A clarification is in order. We have had only one incident in Van Nuys reported to date. The purpose of the original message was to ask the community if anyone had the same thing happen recently but did not report it to police. There is no need for panic. This was a request for information in order for us to see whether this was an isolated incident or whether there were any prior incidents not reported to LAPD. The crime analyst apologizes for any confusion.

Van Nuys Area Sex Crimes Detectives need the assistance of the community in locating an Indecent Exposure Suspect. The suspect is described as a male white, approximately 30-35 years old, 6 feet, and about 190 pounds with brown hair and eyes. The suspect followed his two female victims from a bus stop in his vehicle. At least one victim noticed the suspect was actually nude in the vehicle, which is described as a silver colored 4-Door compact car.

If you witness a similar incident matching the suspect and vehicle or see the suspect and vehicle, please do not attempt to take action yourself. Please note the vehicle description and plate and call
9-1-1. If you have previously seen this suspect in your neighborhood, please contact Van Nuys Detectives at (818) 374-0040 and ask for Detectives Householder or Woods.
