Oceanside Police Investigate a Series of Lewd Acts
February 26, 2013
On February 25, 2013 between the hours of 10:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. (approximately), there were two reports of lewd acts in two different neighborhoods involving a man masturbating in public that appear to involve the same suspect. The suspect description and vehicle in both cases are very similar.
The first incident occurred on the grounds of an apartment complex in the 1300 block of Puls Street. The man, described as a light skinned black male, 20-25 years of age, thin build wearing shorts and a t-shirt, was looking towards an apartment window from a common area when the female inside made eye contact with him. The suspect was observed masturbating in full view of the victim. The suspect fled in what was described as an older 4-door sedan.
The second incident occurred on the grounds of an apartment complex at 1243 El Camino Real, miles away from the first incident. The suspect, matching the same general description as the first incident, was also caught masturbating in a common area in public view. He was also reportedly looking towards the window of an apartment occupied by a woman who subsequently called police. The suspect fled when the victim picked up the phone to call police. A witness saw the suspect leave the area in an older tan (approx. year 2000 or older model) sedan believed to be a Toyota Camry.
