Police seek help to ID man who flashed child in San Mateo
July 20, 2013, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

San Mateo police are asking the public to help them identify a 50-something man who led a 10-year-old girl to a secluded part of a bookstore and exposed himself to her late last month.

The man approached the girl in the children’s book section of Barnes & Noble at 11 W. Hillsdale Blvd. at roughly 3 p.m. June 23 and led her to another area where he flashed and had “inappropriate physical contact,” according to San Mateo police.

Surveillance video captured an image of the suspect who is described as a white male in his 50s, approximately 6 feet tall and wearing a fishing hat, sunglasses and tan cargo pants. He is also heavy set and bald or balding. He was seen getting into a dirty black or gray four-door car parked in the store’s lot.

The reason for the delay in reporting this crime, police said, was that the family did not report it right away. Since receiving the case, police have been using every available resource to solve it, said San Mateo police Sgt. David Norris.

“We are dedicated to pursuing this investigation to bring the perpetrator of this heinous crime to justice,” Norris said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the San Mateo Police Department at either the investigations bureau at 522-7650, the secret witness hotline at 522-7676 or by anonymous email at
