Man who exposed himself to Paso Robles girl is sought by police

Paso Robles police are searching for a man who reportedly exposed himself to a girl in a store parking lot Thursday.

A Paso Robles Police Department news release said that it received a report at 4:30 p.m. from the father of the victim.

He reported that his daughter was walking alone in the shopping center parking lot at 189 Niblick Road when she noticed a man drive past her twice. When he drove by a third time, the father reported, the victim could see the man had his genitals exposed and was masturbating. The man did not say anything to the victim.

Officers later searched the area but were unable to locate the man. They are currently reviewing surveillance footage to possibly identify the man or his vehicle, the news release said.

The man was described as white, in his late teens or early 20s with dark-colored hair, wearing a white shirt and black pants and driving a black or dark-colored two-door passenger car.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Paso Robles Police Department or leave an anonymous tip with Crime Stoppers by calling 546-STOP.
