A South Gate man who is accused of exposing himself to a 21-year-old woman in Long Beach may be connected to at least seven similar incidents in Los Angeles County, authorities said.
The L.A. County Sheriff’s Department booked Albert Raul Pulido, 26, into the county jail until he’s moved to state prison. When police arrested Pulido, he was already on parole for indecent exposure.
The woman told authorities she recognized a vehicle belonging to a man who exposed himself to her two months prior in Lynwood. The woman provided authorities with a video of the suspect’s vehicle, which had been in the vicinity of seven unsolved indecent exposure incidents across the county, based on Pulido’s tracking device.
Authorities said they contacted the victims in the other unsolved indecent exposure cases, who identified Pulido as the man who exposed himself to them. The victims ranged from 14 to 25 years old, according to the Sheriff's Department.
The Long Beach and Bell Gardens police departments, and the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, assisted in the investigation.
Detectives believe Pulido may have committed other indecent exposure acts and are asking for the public’s assistance. Anyone with information should contact the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Special Victims Bureau at (877) 710-5273.
