Police looking for man who exposed himself to Holy Rosary students

Seattle police are on the lookout for a white male in his mid to late 20’s with short dark hair and a heavy build who was last seen driving a large white SUV.

On Sept. 9, around 1:15 p.m., police say the man pulled up outside of Holy Rosary School (4142 42nd Ave. S.W.) and exposed himself to three girls.

The girls were out enjoying recess in the playground when they noticed the SUV parked the wrong way on 41st Ave. S.W., facing northbound on the west side of the street. Police say the suspect beckoned the girls closer to his vehicle.

“As the girls got closer they saw that the suspect, who was sitting in the reclined driver’s seat, was not wearing any pants or underwear,” according to SPD Det. Jeff Kappel.

The victims ran towards the school once they realized the man was half naked, and school officials quickly called police, who responded to the scene but were unable to locate their suspect.

It appears no physical contact was made with the students, nor did the suspect exit his vehicle during the incident.

Sexual Assault Unit detectives are on the case and encourage anyone with information in the case to call 911. Anonymous tips are welcome.
