As she was running up California Way Sw near Hamilton park she noticed the vehicle again and as she passed she looked in the window and a guy was masturbating.

I was walking my dog around the park and was approaching 36th when a man in a silver SUV opened his car door with no pants on and masturbated in front of me - laughing and waving. Disgusting. I first saw him in a silver SUV parked halfway in someone's driveway and then saw him re-park in another driveway - I assumed he was lost. The incident happened about 5 minutes later when I walked around the block (at which point he re-parked again), which leads me to think he was following me. I didn't have a phone on me, but thankfully I caught up with someone in the park who did, and we called 911 immediately. The police responded quickly and took the report - but by that time he had left. Unfortunately, I was so disturbed/unsettled that I didn't get a good description (I ran towards 35th so as to be in a more public place). He was a bigger framed guy in a silver SUV. The police had mentioned that something very similar happened earlier in the week (I'm assuming it's the same incident posted above). I hope they catch this guy - it's very disturbing.

Is there some kind of rehabilitative housing project there or something? 16 is an awful lot for such a small part of our neighborhood.

This occurred on my block and will be on the lookout. First, calling this sex offender a flasher is minimizing the criminal behavior described and probably what harm he is capable of.

Was looking just to see if he might still be hanging around. Since you said it was a silver SUV, I did see that someone had put a note on a silver SUV that was parked across the street from the park but nobody was in it. I hope they catch this creep.

As for the suggestion to stop and catch a license plate or take a pic... NO WAY. Kids need to have one thing burned into their heads: run for safety. We adults can try to stop, intervene, investigate. But it's not worth the risk to kids and they need basic, clear instruction. IMHO. Thank you for stepping up, anon.

But you might consider first trying (206) 684-5575 which is the number, according to SPD's website, for the unit that deals with sex offenses and sex offenders. 911 is what police always advise.

I just called Crime Stoppers, but somehow calling a national company didn't give me the confidence that the tip would trickle down to the local level. Should I call SPD directly? If so, can anyone advise me which line to call? I have a tip as to a suspect that fits this exact description.
