The word has been put out in Santa Ana, Costa Mesa and Fountain Valley about Alfredo Landaverde.
That word? “Did this guy flash you?”
Teen girls headed to school seemed to be a particularly frequent target of the 47-year-old's alleged junk show.
Flasher reports near a Santa Ana school led a car description to be broadcast, and cops saw a vehicle fitting that description Friday at the traffic stop at Fairview Street and Warner Avenue. He was then positively identified by multiple victims, according to the Santa Ana Police Department (SAPD).
Landaverde resides in Costa Mesa, and there are fears among law enforcement that he's flashed kids in that city and Fountain Valley. Crimes were reported beginning in October and continuing through last Thursday.
Anyone who thinks he's pointed his little helper at you is asked to contact SAPD at 714.245.8665.
