SKETCH RELEASED: Police released a sketch of a man who exposed himself to a woman near the entrance of the Palo Alto Baylands.

The woman was parked on Embarcadero Road eating lunch in her car on Jan. 20 when she saw a man coming out of some bushes about 50 to 60 feet from her.

The man unzipped his pants and held his genitals in his hands, the woman reported. The man exposed himself for about 30 seconds and then walked past the woman's car, "actually making eye contact with her briefly," police said.

"The victim did not think the suspect knew she was there at the time he exposed himself, nor did she see any other people in the area to whom the suspect would have intentionally exposed himself," police said.

The individual is described as an unkempt white man in his 40s, about 5 feet 7 inches tall with a medium build and a pot belly. He wore a green long-sleeved buttoned dress shirt with the sleeves rolled up that was tucked into green dress pants. He had short brown hair and a light complexion.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call Palo Alto police at (650) 329-2413.

COUPLE HELD IN GUN RAID: A married couple with at least one child have been arrested during a raid of their Pittsburg home during which police seized three rifles.

Mitchell Coelho, 34, and his wife, Mehgan Coelho, 32, were taken into custody Tuesday at their home on the 5100 block of Kirker Pass Road. They had at least one child living with them, authorities said.

The couple's arrests capped an investigation into illegal gun sales, according to the Contra Costa County sheriff's office.

During a search of the home, members of the CASE (Contra Costa County Anti-Violence Support Effort) team seized .223-caliber Colt M4 semiautomatic rifle, a .308-caliber rifle and a .416-caliber Barrett rifle, said sheriff's spokesman Jimmy Lee.

The couple was arrested on suspicion of weapons violations and child endangerment. Both are being held in lieu of $310,000 bail. Their child was taken into protective custody.
