Man observed masturbating near El Roble school

Police are looking for a man who was caught masturbating in front of a 12-year-old girl on Monday afternoon.

The girl was walking home from school near the intersection of Cambridge and Baylor Avenues around 2:30 p.m. when she saw the suspect in his car masturbating, Claremont police said in a release. She tried to take a picture of the man, but was unsuccessful, and the suspect drove southbound on Cambridge and out of view.

The suspect was described as a heavyset white man around 30-40 years old, wearing baggy blue shorts and a black t-shirt. He was driving a gold, two-door compact Chevrolet car, similar to a Cobalt, with no license plates, police said.

The victim believes she has seen the suspect’s car driving around her school in the past.

Anyone with information should call the Claremont Police Department at (909) 399-5411.
