PALO ALTO (KRON)—Palo Alto police are looking for a man who may have engaged in lewd conduct at a park on Friday afternoon.
A mother reported to police around 4 p.m. that a man might have exposed himself to her 14-year-old daughter at Bol Park on Laguna Ave.
When officers arrived, the suspect was gone.
The teenage girl was riding her bike through the park and noticed a man sitting near the playground area.
As she kept riding, she noticed the man pulled down his shorts. He was possibly exposing his penis through his underpants, police said.
The man did not communicate with the girl and stayed seated the entire time.
The 14-year-old girl left the park and called her mother.
The suspect is described as a tan, white man in his 50s with short, white hair and a medium build.
He was last seen wearing a red T-shirt and cargo-style shorts.
Police are investigating whether this case is connected to other cases.
