The suspect is described as an elderly white male, approximately sixty-five years old, with red bumps around his nose and mouth area, the suspect was slender, had wrinkly skin, and balding with white hair around the sides of his head. The suspect was wearing a white shirt, dark colored shorts, and a black necklace.

The Ventura County Sheriff’s Office would like to remind the public to speak to your children
about “Stranger Danger.” If your child walks to and from school, or for any other reason, it’s
always a good idea to have another person with them.  We encourage the public to call “911” to
report any suspicious behavior.  When reporting suspicious behavior, please be a great witness
and provide as much detail as possible.  With so many individuals now having cellular phones
with cameras, remember to take a photo if it is safe to do so, it truly helps.
Ventura County Crime Stoppers will pay up to $1,000 reward for information, which leads to the arrest and criminal complaint against the person(s) responsible for this crime.  The caller may remain anonymous.  The call is not recorded.  Call Crime Stoppers at 800-222-TIPS (8477).
