Authorities are Attempting to ID Suspect who Indecently Exposed Himself on Public Transportation

LYNWOOD, Calif. – The L.A. County Sheriff’s Department and Transit Service Bureau (TSB) detectives are attempting to identify a man who was exposing his penis in an explicit manner to a female passenger on the Metro Green Line.

The incident occurred on December 10, 2018, at around 10:45 a.m. The train was in the city of Lynwood when the noticed the suspect, who boarded possibly at the Long Beach Metro Green Line Station, sit down across from her in the train car. The suspect began exposing his penis while attempting to gain the victim’s attention. He continued masturbating for several minutes before the victim noticed. The victim got up and moved to a different area. Although the suspect was aware of the cameras, the incident was captured on surveillance. He exited at the Aviation Station.

The suspect is a black man, around 25 to 30-years-old, 5’8” tall, 180 pounds, has short black hair, a mustache, and a scruffy beard. He was wearing a black hoodie, blue jeans, and was carrying a black or dark grey backpack with a small white logo.

LASD TSB handling Detective Karen Velasquez is concerned that the pattern of behavior by the suspect suggests that not only has he done this before, but could also do it again.  “People like this should not be on the streets or on our transit system. We want to ensure that we get him identified as soon as possible.” Although the crime that the suspect is currently wanted for is a misdemeanor, his prior arrest history could make this a felony charge.
