Over the last several months there have been two reported incidents of a man exposing himself and masturbating in front of women walking alone in Juanita Bay and Juanita Beach Parks.

The incidents occurred in the late afternoon to evening hours. In each incident, the man exposed his genitals and masturbated but did not make any threats or attempt to make physical contact with either women.

The suspect is described as a Middle Eastern male, 20 to 30 years old, 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet tall, with a slender build and short, black, shaggy hair.

The sketches were created with the assistance of each victim. Based on similarities in each case the suspects are believed to be the same man.

The Kirkland Police Department is asking for the public’s help in identifying the suspect or with any information concerning these incidents or possibly an unreported incident. Please call 425-577-5656 with any information.

For more information about this case, please contact Detective Alan O’Neill at 425-587-3502 or email ataoneill@kirklandwa.gov.
