Images of Eduardo Diaz-Perez and his vehicle were released by the Fontana Police Department.

The suspect, later identified as Eduardo Diaz-Perez, is accused of approaching a 48-year-old woman who was walking in a residential neighborhood with her granddaughter in a stroller.

Diaz-Perez, a 23-year-old Fontana man, allegedly drove up the victim at 11:30 a.m. Sunday near Canyon Crest Drive and Cherry Avenue, near an elementary school (map), according to police.

He left his car wearing only a shirt and exposed himself to the victim, according to a news release from the Fontana Police Department.

The victim pushed her granddaughter’s stroller behind her to protect the child as Diaz-Perez allegedly grabbed the woman’s arm and started to pull her to him.

The woman hit the suspect and was able to break away, running from the area with her granddaughter and later calling police. The woman identified the suspect to police as Diaz-Perez, Sgt. Doug Imhof said.

The suspect and his vehicle, a white Suzuki sedan, were located Tuesday at a home in the area where the suspect was taken into custody, Imhof said.

Diaz-Perez was booked on charges of kidnapping, false imprisonment and indecent exposure, according to the news release.

In the San Bernardino County inmate locator database, the suspect is identified as Eduardo Antonio Diaz Pena. He was being held in West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamonga on $250,000 bail and was due in Fontana Superior Court Thursday, according to the online database.

Detectives believe the suspect is responsible for similar acts that have not been reported.┬áThose who have information on Diaz-Perez or similar crimes are asked to call the Fontana Police Department’s Investigations Unit at 909-350-7720.
