Mentone Man Arrested for Exposing Himself to 88-Year-Old Woman

REDLANDS, Calif. – A Mentone man was arrested for exposing his penis to an elderly woman earlier this month.

The victim said that on Sunday, February 3, 2019, at around 12:30 p.m, she was sitting on the couch of her home located in a Redlands assisted living and retirement community. The male suspect entered her room at Mission Commons located at 10 Terracina Boulevard. The suspect was carrying a laundry basket filled with the 88-year-old woman’s clothing. When he placed the basket down he exposed his penis and masturbated in front of the woman.

The woman told him to leave her room, he complied, leaving on foot. He was last seen in a 2010 silver Ford Focus with a Canadian flag air freshener hanging from the rearview mirror. With the help of the victim, the investigators developed a sketch of the suspect, who was later identified as 41-year-old Darrell Robert Finstad. On Tuesday, February 19, 2019, police served a search warrant at Finstad’s home in the 2200 block of Nice Avenue in Mentone and at his Yucaipa job. Evidence was located at both locations and Finstad was subsequently arrested for indecent exposure, burglary, and elder abuse. He is being held in lieu of $125,000 bail.

Anyone with additional information on this case is asked to contact the Redlands Police Department at (909) 798-7681 or Detective Chris Mead at cmead@redlandspolice.org.
