     Chula Vista Police are searching for a suspected flasher who jumped in front of at least three victims completely naked, according to witnesses.

    The most recent case happened Thursday around 9 p.m. in the 2200 block of Trellis Street.

    A woman told police she was walking along the road when a naked man jumped out from behind some bushes and asked her for clothes.

    However, the suspect ran off when another man walked up with his dogs.

    Police say the indecent exposure matches a similar incident on May 1 in the 2100 block of Kestrel Falls Road. A second woman was walking her dogs around 9:30 p.m. when she spotted a naked man standing in the road.

    She said he was holding some clothing over his groin area and asked the victim for some clothes. When the woman ignored him, the man walked away and appeared moments later in some bushes down the street—this time completely exposed, according to police.

    The woman and her friends had seen the man a few days earlier at their community pool, she told police.

    In that instance, the man again appeared naked and requested clothes. The women ignored him, so he left, reappearing a short time later fully dressed. He told them his name is Bruce and requested he let them in the gated area.

    The victim said she did not call 911 because she thought the man was drunk.

    CVPD officers were canvassing the neighborhood Friday afternoon in search of more victims and witnesses.

    The suspect is described as a dark-skinned, brown-eyed man between 16 and 20 years old. Witnesses say he is about 5-foot-2 to 5-foot-4, weighs between 140 and 160 pounds, is clean-shaven and has brown, short hair with a “bowl cut” hair style.

    If you know anything about these incidents, call CVPD at 619-691-5190 or 619-691-5151.
