Man who exposed himself to middle-schoolers suspected in other cases

A man being sought by Danville police in connection with two different acts of indecent exposure is also a suspect in two other areas for similar occurrences.

All three incidents happened in the space of four days. The first reported incident happened Sept. 18 on the Iron Horse Trail in Danville. Two groups of girls walking home from Los Cerros Middle School observed a man jogging on the trail who pulled up his shorts to expose himself as he ran past.

The following Monday and Tuesday, Sept. 21 and 22, college students at St. Mary's College in Moraga reported seeing a man with a similar description who exposed himself. On Sept. 22, Orinda police received a report of a man exposing himself to students.

In all cases, the man was described as a white male, 35-45 years old, between 5 feet 10 inches and 6 feet tall. Reportedly, the suspect drives a dark gray Infiniti G35.

Danville police are continuing to seek a suspect in the case. Anyone with information is urged to contact the Police Department at 314-3700.

Get a police sketch of him out there...SOMEONE knows who he is, or will see him or report him......especially with the description of his car. These guys are creatures of habit, probably local and his behavior probably will escalate-

So find him NOW

Bike riders on Iron Horse trail be on the lookout for this guy and report to the Police in the City or the East Bay Regional Park Police at 510-881-1833.

I don't believe the "flashing" episode occurred on the Iron Horse Trail, but rather on a fire road connecting Los Cerros MS and Monte Vista HS. Los Cerros is quite a ways from the Iron Horse Trail.

Unfortunately I am working during the hours when school lets out, but I wonder if some adult walkers who are around during those hours could alter their walking route to the areas where this occurred? Maybe more people in the area would keep the kids safer.

LOL, Jerry. I wouldn't have thought of that until you wrote it. I'm going out right now and reporting all middle-aged white males of average height on the ironhorse trail. Oh wait, the article actually says the police want information and provides a number to call. I guess Geoff Gillette beat you to it. Darn.

Charming post there, "20 year resident...". Got an axe to grind with Jerry for reiterating helpful info from the police?

"20 year resident", the number Jeff provided was to the East Bay Regional Park police department. Unbeknownst to many, the iron horse trail, parks and open space are monitored by EBRP and not the local police dept. That's why Jeff provided that number. It's not a bad idea to take the time and enter both numbers in your cell phone....I just did. And yes, David, you are correct, the Los Cerros incident took place on the shortcut (fire road) which connects Los Cerros Middle school's back fields to Monte Vista H.S.
