SANTEE (KUSI) — 9/8/2017 — A 17-year-old male was in police custody Friday for exposing himself to hikers along the Walker Preserve Trail in Santee.

Between Aug. 17 and Aug. 21, females walking along the trail reported witnessing a male expose his genitals and act as if he were masturbating.

The subject was described as a white or Hispanic male adult, standing about 5' 7" and weighing about 200 pounds. He was wearing a gold chain and a white shirt.

Statements on social media sites made the area investigators at the Sheriff's Santee Patrol Station believe there were more than the two incidents. Two other victims were identified through the work of area investigators, crime and intelligence analysts, and the cooperation of local media. These victims were presented with photographic lineups and were able to identify the suspect.

The suspect is a 17-year-old male. He was placed under arrest for violations of 314 PC Indecent Exposure and 647(a) PC Disorderly Conduct: Lewd Act in Public on Sept. 5.

Because he is a minor that had no criminal history and had been cooperative with law enforcement while being questioned, he was released to the custody of his parents pending evaluation of the case by the San Diego County District Attorney's Office. 

8/23/2017 — Authorities warned the public Wednesday to beware of a man who has exposed himself to several women over the last week in an East County open-space park.

The flasher accosted the victims Thursday and Monday as they walked along Walker Preserve Trail in Santee, according to sheriff's officials.

The women described him as a roughly 5-feet-7-inch, 200-pound white or Hispanic man, wearing a gold chain and a white shirt, Sgt. William Amavisca said.

Anyone with information about the crimes was asked to call the San Diego County Sheriff's Department at (858) 565-5200.
