On Saturday, a man led the UC Davis Police Department (UCDPD) and Davis Police Department (DPD) on a wild goose chase.
The UCDPD received a call at 3:53 p.m. that the man was masturbating in the UC Davis Arboretum. Once approached by a UC Davis police officer, the suspect fled.
The suspect proceeded to run through the Arboretum and Aggie Village before jumping over a fence at First and C streets.
As the suspect fled through backyards of residences, three more officers joined the aforementioned officer. The DPD also sent six of their cruisers to follow suit.
At 4:40 p.m., the officers discontinued their search because the suspect was unable to be located.
The indecent exposure suspect is described as a 6-foot-tall white male in his 20s, last seen wearing black running clothes.
