Search Continues For Sexual Predator In Carson

CARSON ( — Deputies Friday continued to search for a man wanted for molesting and annoying several female victims during in two separate incidents.

Around 5:45 p.m. on Tuesday, a man walked behind three 14-year-old girls in the area of Fries Avenue and Lomita Boulevard.

According to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, the suspect talked with the girls to get their attention. When they turned around, the man exposed and touched himself.

Authorities said the victims ran to a nearby home and reported the incident to deputies.

About an hour later that same day, a man followed an 18-year-old woman to her home located near 213th and Dolores streets. When the victim reached her front door, the man once again exposed himself.

According to city officials, the suspect prevented the victim from closing the door by putting his foot in the doorway. When the victim screamed, the suspect fled from the area.
