SAN RAMON – Police are investigating reports of lewd conduct targeting middle school students in the Dougherty area.
Last Thursday, October 12th, San Ramon Valley Unified School District personnel notified police that multiple students had witnessed lewd activity in the Dougherty area a week prior.
According to police, on October 5th, at approximately 4:30 pm, two middle school students walking on Bollinger Canyon Road near Blossom Ridge Lane witnessed a male adult drive up to them in an older, dark gray, 4-door sedan. The male told the boy to walk away and asked the girl to come to his vehicle. When the she approached the vehicle, the male asked if she had a girlfriend and attempted to grab her shirt. She looked inside the vehicle, saw the male’s genitals were exposed, and that he was touching his genitals in an inappropriate manner. She immediately backed up from the vehicle and ran away.
Later that day at around 5 pm, another female student reported seeing the same vehicle and suspect in the area of Bollinger Canyon Road and Main Branch Road. The male pulled his vehicle alongside this student and asked her several random questions before saying, “What’s your name?” After the male asked her this question, she turned around and ran away.
On Monday, October 16th, a similar description suspect approached two girls near a footbridge in the area of Watermill Road and South Monarch Drive. He asked a high school student if she would take a photo with her, she did. The suspect then exposed himself, began masturbating and asked her to take another photo.
