Southwest Detectives have received a crime report in which a male suspect in his vehicle approached a 13 year-old female victim walking in the area of La Brea Avenue and Coliseum Street at approximately 2:00 p.m. on August 12, 1999. The male suspect, who was completely naked, masturbated as he made a lewd comment to the victim. The victim then ran away from the suspect and reported the incident to the police a short time later.

The victim described the suspect as a male Black, with black/gray curly hair, brown eyes, approximately 5'9" to 5'10" in height, with a thin build and medium complexion. The suspect is also described as being between 40 and 50 years old, having chipped/missing teeth, and a disheveled appearance.
