MURRIETA ( — Murrieta police Saturday continued to search for a man suspected of exposing himself to at least two female students near Murrieta Valley High School within the past two weeks.

The first alleged incident occurred about 7:05 a.m. on Sept. 5, at Washington Avenue and Vineyard Parkway.

Police said that days later, on Sept. 12, a man matching the same description of the suspect exposed himself to a different student on Washington Avenue and Nighthawk Way.

In both incidents, police say the man committed a lewd act while sitting in his car and staring at the girls.

The suspect is described as a short Hispanic male with dark-colored cropped hair.

He is believed to be in his late 30s to early 50s and was seen driving a 1990s model, compact blue vehicle with oxidized and slightly faded blue paint.

Authorities urged anyone with information about the suspect or his whereabouts to call Detective Phil Gomez at (951) 461-6356.
