February 3, 2016
Paso Robles police are searching for a man who masturbated in front of middle school students in Paso Robles Tuesday morning.
Two groups of children reported seeing a man masturbating in a vehicle in the area of Flamson Middle School. The man had his pants down and was exposing his genitals, according to the Paso Robles Police Department.
The children reported the incidents to middle school staff who immediately notified police. Officers responded the incident around 8:15 a.m.
Police searched the area but did not manage to locate the suspect. The incidents reportedly occurred near the intersection of 23rd and Oak streets and near 28th and Spring streets.
The man never spoke to the victims. He did not leave his car, and he appeared to be alone in the vehicle.
Both sets of children described the suspect as a white male in his 40s. He was last seen wearing a black jacket with dark colored pants.
Police say he has a dirty blonde to dark colored mustache and beard and was wearing a black ski mask during one of the incidents.
The suspect was driving a white four-door car, possibly a mid-2000s model. The vehicle was said to have black door handles, a black door stripe on both sides and a white license plate with a black frame.
Witnesses last saw the car heading southbound in the 2100 block of Oak Street.
Investigators request that anyone with information call the police department.
The indecent exposure incident marks the third time in a span of three weeks that local law enforcement has reported that a suspect was masturbating in front of minors. The previous incidents occurred in San Luis Obispo and Avila Beach. A man was arrested in the Avila Beach case.
