Police searching for suspected child sex predator who may be in the area

On January 1, 2014, a suspect sexually assaulted a child in the bathroom of a Denny’s Restaurant in the city of Palmdale. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department investigated the case and put out a suspect information flyer and press release regarding the suspect.

On January 6, 2014, about 3:30 P.M., a citizen driving through the Promenade Mall in Temecula observed a male subject walk in front of their vehicle. The citizen honked at the subject to move, and then drove away. The citizen later became aware of the flyers put out by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department regarding the January 1, 2014, incident, and realized the subject appeared to match the description of the suspect in that case.

The suspect in the sexual assault at the Denny’s Restaurant in Palmdale on January 1, 2014, was described as follows:

White male adult, about 5’8” tall and weighing about 150 pounds, with shaggy blond hair, and walking with a noticeable limp. He was wearing a red shirt, dark-colored shorts, and dark tennis shoes on the day of the attack. The subject is also described as being a possible transient.

    By the photos it looks like he is holding his right arm, like he suffered a stroke or brain trauma. it shouldn’t be hard to notice him.

    One reason I never let my children go to public restrooms without me or my husband. Interestingly, now that I have moved out of California and into a small town in the Midwest,I no longer follow my kids to the restroom. I didn’t even consciously make that decision. I was sitting at a restaurant and my son asked to go to the bathroom and I told him to go ahead.it wasn’t until he was walking away that I realized I was fine with him going alone. I know this stuff can happen anywhere, but it seems there was more of a mass, untrustworthy population in CA.

    @ Mom of lots,
    Sexual disorders are not a California Disease so better to a little rethinking.
    Disasters always seem to happen when you let your guard down.
