Police seek man who allegedly masturbated in front of two students

Police are searching for a man who was reportedly masturbating in his car in front of two John Burroughs High School students on Wednesday afternoon.

At 4:15 p.m., the girls — one 14 years old and the other 15 — were walking northbound on Keystone Street by the high school when they noticed a man in a gold-colored Honda who was nude from the waist down, masturbating, with the passenger-side door open, said Burbank Police Officer Cindy Guillen.

The man, who was reportedly parked on the east side of Keystone, was described as Hispanic, heavy-set, with short dark hair and sideburns, Guillen said. He was reportedly wearing a dark shirt and sunglasses.

The students reported the incident roughly an hour later, but detectives were unable to locate the vehicle, Guillen said.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Burbank police at (818) 238-3210.
