On March 26 at approximately 4:33 p.m., a 17-year-old victim was walking in the area of Buena Vista Avenue and Sunview Drive when she noticed she was approaching an occupied vehicle that was parked against the curb. The occupant was an adult male seated in the driver’s seat. As she passed by, she saw the male was staring at her while masturbating. The victim snapped a photo of the vehicle and its license plate and ran several blocks to a friend’s house.
Using the photo the victim took, officers were able to find the suspect’s home address in Glendale. Officers then responded to his home and found him arriving to his home in the same vehicle, a silver Honda CR-V. The suspect was positively identified by the victim.
The suspect, a 35-year-old man, admitted that he was in the La Crescenta area “hitting” on girls and admitted that some were underage. However, he denied exposing himself or masturbating.
Anyone with information about this incident or this suspect is urged to call the Glendale Police Dept. at (818) 548-4911.
