A 29-year-old Guadalupe man masturbated in front of his 2-year-old daughter, as well as a group women of women walking by in Avila Beach, according to the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office. When a woman spotted him, he attempted to drive off with the passenger door open.

Around 10:25 a.m. Tuesday, a sheriff’s deputy responded to the report of a man masturbating in a parked car near the intersection of Avila Beach Drive and San Juan Street. Several women said they were walking on the Bob Jones Trail when one of them noticed a car parked adjacent to them on Avila Beach Drive with the passenger door open.

One of the women said she noticed an overweight man with no pants sitting in the driver’s seat and masturbating. The woman yelled, and the man began to drive away with the door still open.

A witness managed to recall part of the license plate number. Minutes later, a deputy spotted a car that matched the description of the vehicle and the license plate number.

The deputy conducted a traffic stop. As he approached the vehicle, he saw a small girl was in the backseat without a child safety seat.

Witnesses identified the suspect, whom the sheriff’s office has identified as Eric Manuel Salinas. Deputies arrested Salinas without incident. They charged him with child endangerment, annoying or molesting a child and indecent exposure.

The two-year-old girl was placed in the custody of Child Welfare Services.

Deputies booked Salinas in San Luis Obispo County Jail. He is no longer in custody, according to the sheriff’s office website.

    What’s with our sexually deprived Southern neighbors having to drive all the way up to Avila Beach to masturbate? Remember the incident last summer in the Pirate’s Cove parking lot? (http://bit.ly/23yrI7H) Our open spaces just aren’t safe anymore, day or night.

    Big government enables this kind of garbage to procreate with inherited privileges, including readily accessible hard drugs to use and sell. This huge waste of taxpayer money keeps police busily responding to petty incidents of domestic violence.

    Educate District 3 so SLO county doesn’t become another gang-infested metropolis.

    They told him, “Don’t you ever come around here.
    Don’t wanna see your face. You better disappear.”
    The fire’s in their eyes and their words are really clear
    So beat it, just beat it

    You better run, you better do what you can
    Don’t wanna see no blood, don’t be a macho man
    You wanna be tough, better do what you can
    So beat it, but you wanna be bad

    Just beat it, beat it, beat it, beat it
    No one wants to be defeated
    Showin’ how funky strong is your fight
    It doesn’t matter who’s wrong or right

    Ten to one that is “chubby” boy who was reported by the 15 year old earlier in the month. Put him in a line up, have her ID him and chalk up some charges against a minor. That will get a judges attention-and it will get him on Megan’s List so the community is aware of this.

    Well, if he makes bail I’ll bet he doesn’t want to hang out much in Guad. The local “sentiment” isn’t real fond of his types.

      “… if he makes bail”?

      The article clearly indicates that “He is no longer in custody.”

      The creep is already out and back on the street.

    What the hell! Hopefully this child will not be released back to this man. She should be examined by a professional. This is so disgusting and from Guadalupe and comes to a family beach.

    Under Gov Brown’s new releasse program for those charges with minor crimes this man will fall into that category and will continue to street our street. Pretty sson will we have more criminals than law abiding citizens. What a joke we have become!

        Why is this perv going to do less time than Oscar?

        How about that citizen of the year who molested those children?

        It’s like the real child molesters run free.

        Really? You choose this issue to lodge a political attack against our Governor?

        On what basis would you make this supposition? Has Gov Brown ever reclassified a perp who acted in a similar way as the current perp acted?
