Palo Alto police investigate possible lewd conduct incident

Police in Palo Alto are investigating a possible lewd conduct incident that occurred Friday at a city park.

On Friday around 4 p.m., a woman contacted the Palo Alto Police Department to report a man had possibly exposed himself to her 14-year-old daughter at Bol Park at 3590 Laguna Ave.

Officers responded to the area, but the subject was gone, police said.

Police said the 14-year-old had been riding her bicycle through the park around 3:45 p.m. when she noticed a man seated on a nearby bench.

As she continued past the man, she noticed the man had pulled down his shorts, possibly exposing himself through his underpants, police said.

The subject remained seated throughout the incident and did not make any attempt to communicate with the juvenile.

The 14-year-old left the area and called her mother.

The subject is described as a white man in his fifties, tan, with short spiked hair and a medium build. He was wearing a red T-shirt and cargo shorts.
