Hes so excited, and he just can’t hide it

The Davis Police Department has received six reports of indecent exposure since July 7. In each case, an unknown suspect has exposed himself to adult females in common areas, such as swimming pools, fitness rooms and laundry rooms, according to a DPD press release.

Four of these incidents have occurred between the 600 and 1200 blocks of Alvarado Street. When confronted, the suspect flees the scene on a dark-colored bicycle.

The suspect is described as male, between 5-foot-3 and 5-foot-7. He is between 16 and 20 years old, has tan white skin, a thin build and is clean shaven. He has chin-length, dark wavy hair that is described as oily or dirty.

Indecent exposure activity is commonly linked to prowling and peeping in apartment complex areas, according to the press release. Police have not yet located or apprehended the suspect. Anyone who observes this activity directly is advised to leave the area and call 911 immediately.


Hot pursuit

A Santa Clara County parolee led Davis police on a high-speed chase Wednesday after an officer discovered that the vehicle the parolee was driving had been stolen in San Jose two weeks earlier, according to a DPD press release.

The stolen vehicle was discovered when a Davis police officer made a routine license plate check. The officer followed the vehicle on Interstate 80 until backup arrived, at which point the chase began.

The chase reached speeds of 100 mph between Davis and Fairfield, where the suspect pulled over and was arrested without incident. The suspect was also driving his grandmother, girlfriend and two of the girlfriends children, ages 3 and 4. The suspect was arrested and charged with four counts of felony kidnapping, two counts of felony child endangerment, evading police, possession of stolen property and driving a stolen vehicle.
