Belmont police say they believe they have identified the man who twice exposed himself to women walking on Hiller Street in Belmont. While an arrest has not yet been made, Belmont police Lt. Tony Psaila said officers are sure they have identified the right man.
On Saturday, at about 5:30 p.m., a man driving a dark red 1990s Toyota Camry exposed himself to a woman while she was walking her dog on Hiller Street.
The woman immediately called Belmont police, and the man fled. The woman was able to get the license plate on the Toyota, and officers learned it was registered out of the area.
The incident comes less than a week after a similar report of a man, matching the same description, exposed himself to a woman, also walking on Hiller Street.
After the Jan. 20 incident, investigators obtained an image of a driver and vehicle consistent with the suspect description from a security camera mounted on a home in the neighborhood, Lt. Patrick Halleran said.
While conducting a follow-up investigation, Belmont police officers found a car in Belmont which matched the description of the car that was driven in the earlier indecent exposure case.
Soon after, officers found a Belmont man who also matched the descriptions given by the women in both cases. The man was interviewed, and a report is being sent to the San Mateo County District Attorney's office requesting charges be filed against the Belmont man.
The suspect’s name is not being released at this time as charges are pending.
