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.
