ENCINITAS, Calif. – Authorities reached out to the public Friday for help in identifying the man who exposed himself to women around Cardiff on three occasions in a month.

In all of the cases, the white man about 25-30 years old exposed himself while engaging in a lewd act, San Diego Sheriff’s Department Detective Shawn Silva said.

The most recent incident was reported just before noon on December 17 in the 2200 block of Carol View Drive in Cardiff, said Silva. The suspect was wearing a green hooded sweatshirt and nothing from the waist down.

Women reported similar sightings on November 29 and Dec. 7, according to the detective.

Crimestoppers offered a $1,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.

Anyone with information should call Silva at the Encinitas Sheriff’s Station at 760-966-3500 or 858-656-5200.
