Investigators in Irvine were looking for a man who exposed himself to girls within a residential development called Woodbridge, police announced Thursday.
A composite sketch of the man was released after two incidents occurred two blocks apart on West Yale Loop (map) Wednesday afternoon.
Two 15-year-old girls walking home from school together separated from each other about 3:20 p.m. Then a dark sedan pulled up to the curb by one of the teens and the driver motioned for her to come to his car, according to police. She did not comply.
Then, a few minutes later, the same man drove up to the other girl and motioned for her to look through his passenger window, where he was exposing himself to her, according to a news release from the Irvine Police Department.
Detectives believe the perpetrator may be related to other incidents in Woodbridge on Jan. 17 and Feb. 4, when a man exposed himself through unzipped pants to two girls he approached on foot, asking for directions.
The man, suspected of child annoyance and indecent exposure, was described as light-skinned, between 20 and 30 years old, and with short, dark brown hair. The vehicle was a dark, four-door sedan with tinted windows, according to police.
Anyone with information was asked to contact the Irvine Police Department at 949-724-7200.
