MILLBRAE (KRON) — A Millbrae neighborhood is on the lookout tonight for a man who exposed himself to two teenage girls over the weekend.
It all happened just blocks from an elementary school.
On Sunday, two teenage girls say while they were bike riding, a man they didn’t know drove up, and exposed himself.
“This is the first time i’ve heard of such a thing,” said resident Pat Kohtz.
White picket fences and quiet homes — not necessarily a place you’d suspect an indecent exposure to happen.
Kohtz has lived off Mosswood Lane since the 1950s.
She says hearing what happened to two teenage girls over the weekend concerns her.
“We have a lot of kids here naturally going to and from school and I’m just very shocked that this has happened here,” she said.
San Mateo County Sheriff’s, say around 6:40 p.m. Sunday, the girls were biking in their neighborhood when a black male in his mid 30s pulled over his silver sedan.
They say he got out, pulled down his jeans and exposed himself to them.
When he got back in his car to apparently get on the same side of the street as them, the girls dropped their bikes and ran to a neighbor.
“The girls did the right thing and they immediately ran to an adult where the adult then alerted law enforcement,” said a spokesperson for the sheriff’s office.
The suspect drove off and is still on the loose.
Deputies say neighbors are being helpful though, handing over home security video to try and get a good glimpse of what happened.
“I live right across the street from where the police car was parked,” said resident Andy Themoleas.
Themoleas coaches basketball down the street at Meadows Elementary.
He says these days he and his neighbors are always looking out for each other.
“The child was just outside their home, it’s not like they were in the park or out in the open so it’s hard to tell,” he said. “We just have to keep our eyes open.”
The girls family says they’ve heard of two other instances of this happening with a similar suspect description, but San Mateo Sheriff’s wouldn’t confirm that.
They did however say they were connecting with other agencies to see if they had similar incidents.
if anyone in the area has information, you’re asked to contact either Millbrae Police or San Mateo County Sheriff’s.
