SUMMARY: UPDATE Monday, June 18, 2018
Through further investigation, it has been determined that during the incident that occurred in Beaumont the suspect did not expose himself to the victim.

On Saturday, May 12, 2018 at 11:30 a.m. two minor females were walking in the 12700 block of Holmes Street in Yucaipa when they observed a white male standing near a tree. The male unzipped his pants and made a sexual comment to the minors, who then turned and ran away. The male was observed next to a black Honda, possibly a Civic or Accord, with front-end damage.
During our investigation, deputies discovered the suspect in this incident closely matched a suspect described in a similar incident that took place in the city of Beaumont on May 23rd. During that incident, the male suspect, also described as driving a dark-colored Honda, exposed himself and made sexual advances toward a minor female.
The assistance of a police artist was sought and, with the assistance of victims from Yucaipa and Beaumont, a sketch of the suspect was constructed. Yucaipa Police Detectives are seeking assistance from the public in identifying the suspect.
