Indecent exposure

A woman jogger from Mountain View encountered a man masturbating within view of the Stevens Creek trail at about 2:45 p.m. on Sept. 25, police said.

Officers searched the trail after the incident was reported at about 3:27 p.m., but found no one, according to Liz Wylie, public information officer for the Mountain View police.

The man clearly intended to be seen by someone, Wylie said. He was standing out in the open and he reportedly smirked while making eye contact with the victim, age 51, as she jogged past.

Wylie said the man was described as being around 18 years old, thin and about 5 feet 9 inches tall, with wavy, medium length dark hair. The man was white, with very light skin. He was wearing a brown plaid long-sleeved shirt and tan shorts.

He made no attempt to approach the woman or follow her, Wylie said.

Embezzlement arrest

A new cashier at the Target on Showers Drive has been accused of pocketing nearly $2,000 in cash over the course of his first two solo shifts at the register, police said.

Alex Guevara, an 18-year-old Mountain View resident, allegedly stole $1,974.75 over the course of two days, loss prevention officials at Target told police.

After officials at the store discovered that cash was missing from Guevara's register after the first solo shift on Sept. 15, Target security watched him on camera as he worked his second day, Sept. 21, Liz Wylie, a spokeswoman for the Mountain View Police Department said.

The store's loss prevention team confronted and detained Guevara, allegedly finding money in his sock. Police arrested Guevara on suspicion of embezzlement and booked him into jail.
