Indecent exposure arrest

A man was arrested on charges of exposing and pleasuring himself in public at a Mountain View apartment complex on Nov. 11, police said.

David Luck, a 33-year-old man from San Francisco, was accused of the lewd act by a 45-year-old woman who works in the leasing office of the Shadows apartment complex in the 700 block of N. Shoreline Boulevard, according to Sgt. Sean Thompson, public information officer for the Mountain View Police Department.

The woman told police that the man approached the glass door of the leasing office with his jeans unzipped around 10:30 p.m. and began his lascivious display, Thompson said. The woman tried to get him to stop by banging her hand against the desk, but it didn't work, so she picked up the phone to call the police.

The man eventually left, but was later discovered and identified less than a block away, Thompson said. Luck was arrested and booked into jail on charges of indecent exposure.

Burglary thwarted

A woman who was house-sitting at a home in the 200 block of S. Rengstorff scared off a pair of would-be burglars on Nov. 10, according to police.

The incident occurred between 12:20 p.m. and 12:35 p.m., MVPD spokesman Sgt. Sean Thompson said. According to the police report, the woman heard the doorbell ring followed by a knock. She did not answer the door.

After she neglected to answer the door one of the two burglars went around to the side of the house, pried open a window into the garage and kicked down the door leading from the garage to the home, Thompson said. The woman observed the man who kicked down the door walk across the living room and open a back window for his accomplice to enter.

The woman, who was already on the phone with 911 dispatchers, yelled at the man already in the house, who then fled through the front door.

The two suspects were described as Hispanic men in their early 20s wearing dark clothing.
