Crime Briefs: indecent exposure and laptop damaged

Indecent exposure

Police received a report that a man in the parking lot of SummerWinds Nursery exposed himself in front of a mother and her two small children on April 5 at 5:26 p.m.

The woman and her children, ages 2 and 4, had been shopping at the garden center, and were leaving when they encountered a man in the parking lot smiling at the mother. The 4-year-old told the mother that the man had exposed his genitals, according to Sgt. Saul Jaeger of the Mountain View Police Department.

A witness saw the man run away onto Steven's Creek Trail, and was not found after a search that included the use of a police dog.

The suspect was described as a white male in his mid- to late-30s with black hair, a black beard and wearing a gray baseball cap. Police say detectives will be following up on the case.

Laptop damaged at Dojo

The suspect reportedly approached the victim at the Hacker Dojo on April 2 at 4 a.m. The victim was working on his computer when the suspect, known as Richard Walker, asked him to turn down his music. Walker allegedly pressed on the screen of the laptop and damaged it, according to Sgt. Saul Jaeger of the Mountain View Police Department.

Walker told the victim he would pay for the screen, but he could not be located.
