IRVINE (CBSLA.com) — The Irvine Police Department is looking for a man who exposed himself to a 6-year-old girl as she walked home from school Wednesday afternoon.
The man, who was driving a white vehicle, pulled up to the victim on Deerfield Avenue, west of Yale Avenue, at 3 p.m, according to police.
She had been walking with two of her older siblings at the time, but they were ahead of her and did not witness the incident.
“While the victim was talking to the suspect from the sidewalk, he asked her if she had, ‘seen this,’ causing her to move nearer to the car,” according to a statement from the Irvine Police Department.
When the girl looked through the passenger window, the man exposed himself. She immediately walked away and rejoined her siblings.
Police will be increasing patrols in the area and are working with the Irvine Unified School District to ensure parents are notified about the incident.
The suspect has been described as a white man in his thirties. He was wearing an orange shirt and blue jeans.
Anyone with information about the case was asked to contact the Irvine Police Department at (949)724-7000.
