Police were seeking the public's help Thursday in locating a man who harassed and exposed himself to a 14-year-old girl in Walnut Creek last week.
The teen was walking along the Iron Horse Trail near Westcliffe Lane around 1:20 p.m. last Monday, June 18, when a man approached her and offered drugs and solicited sex from the juvenile, police said.
Police said the suspect continued to follow the girl until she reached the parking lot of her home, where he exposed himself to her.
The man is described as an approximately 40-year-old Hispanic man who is about 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighs roughly 200 pounds with a noticeable belly.
He is also described as having black hair, brown eyes, a medium-dark complexion and spoke English with a heavy Spanish accent, police said.
The suspect was last seen wearing an orange, construction-type vest and was smoking L&M cigarettes.
Police have developed a composite sketch based on his description.
Anyone with information about the suspect is asked to call Walnut Creek police Detective Keagy at (925) 943-5881 or Sgt. Mike McLaughlin at (925) 256-3570.
