Man arrested for indecent exposure at Landels


A Palo Alto resident was arrested in Mountain View on Saturday after he allegedly exposed himself to a mother and her child at Landels Elementary.

The mother told police that she was playing with her daughter on the playground at the school, located in Old Mountain View near Highway 85, around 6:15 p.m. when she looked up and saw the 26-year-old man exposing himself, according to police spokeswoman Katie Nelson. Officers searched the area and found the man hiding in bushes near the playground.

The man was arrested on charges of indecent exposure as well as annoying or molesting children, due to the fact that he allegedly exposed himself to a child at a school campus, Nelson said. He is being held in Santa Clara County jail without bail.

The same man was also arrested at the Little Caesar's Pizza in Mountain View on two consecutive occasions last year, when he allegedly attempted to steal pizzas from a customer. During the second altercation, he was accused of trying to coerce customers into buying him pizza, "chest-bumping" one of the customers and blocking the exit in order to prevent people from leaving the business.

Don't expect anything to change until he gets mental help. Jail will just be a pause before the inevitable next event. Hopefully the severity of the offense does not continue to increase
