Paso Robles police are investigating two separate incidents of indecent exposure perpetrated on middle school children within 10 minutes of each other Tuesday morning near Flamson Middle School.
About 8:15 a.m., two groups of children reported seeing a man in a vehicle with his pants down, exposing his genitals to them as he masturbated, while they walked to school, police said. The man was reportedly alone in the vehicle and did not speak to the children.
The first incident occurred at 23rd and Oak streets, and the second at 28th and Spring streets. Police believe the same man was involved in both incidents.
Police searched the area but did not find the man and are asking for the public’s help. The man was described as in his 40s with a dirty blond to dark mustache and beard, wearing a black jacket and dark pants. He was driving a mid-2000s four-door car with black door handles, a black stripe on both sides, and a white license plate with black frame. The vehicle was last seen heading south on the 2100 block of Oak Street.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Police Department at 237-6464 or Crime Stoppers at 549-STOP, or send an anonymous at slotips.org.
