Indecent exposure

A man pulled down his pants Sunday, exposing himself to a 34-year-old Mountain View woman in the carport of her apartment complex, located in the 2600 clock of California Street, police said.

Police arrested 25-year-old Abraham Bajjalieh, also from Mountain View, after the woman reported the indecent exposure incident at 5:27 p.m. on Oct. 24, according to Liz Wylie, a spokeswoman for the Mountain View police.

The victim identified Bajjaleih as the man who had flashed her and he was booked into jail, Wylie said.

Residential burglary

About $100 in cash and coins were stolen from a home in the 600 block of Hans Avenue, in a burglary that occurred some time between Oct. 9 and Oct. 23, police said.

The victim, a 35-year-old man, returned from vacation to find the money missing, according to police spokeswoman Liz Wylie. Police identified an open bathroom window as the point of entry.

Robber rebuffed

A would-be robber was thwarted on the morning of Oct. 12 after he attempted to steal a Mountain View woman's book bag, police said.

The 46-year-old woman said she was at Rengstorff Park near the intersection of Rengstorff and Stanford avenues at about 5:30 a.m., when a man approached her from behind and tried to pull her bag away, said police spokesperson Liz Wylie. The woman kneed the robber and he let go, and then ran.

Wylie said the woman told police she could not identify the man's race, but described him as about 6 feet tall and weighing about 250 pounds, with a dark complexion.

Two beaten in robbery

Two men were beaten and one of them was robbed as they were walking in the 500 block of Escuela Avenue, police said.

At about 9:50 p.m., Oct. 19, four unknown men approached the two victims near the corner of Escuela Avenue and Vernon Court and began punching and kicking them, said police spokeswoman Liz Wylie. One of the victims, a 21-year-old Mountain View man, fell to the ground and the assailants pulled his wallet, which held bank cards and $200 in cash, from his back pocket. The other victim, a 19-year-old also from Mountain View, was not robbed.

Both declined transport to the hospital for treatment of their injuries. The suspects are described as ranging in age from their late teens to early 30s. All of them were wearing black.
