Palmdale man arrested for indecent exposure


Esvin Donis, 33, was taken into custody by Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies Wednesday in relation to an incident that happened on Monday.

In that incident, a 23-year-old female was at Desert Sands Park in Palmdale when she noticed the suspect staring at her. The woman wanted to avoid the suspect, so she went to the park bathroom. When she exited the bathroom, the suspect exposed himself to her.

When the victim screamed and threatened to call authorities, the suspect fled. The woman went to her car, called deputies and wrote down several of the vehicles' license plates in the parking lot. When the victim returned to the park a few minutes later, she noticed that only one of the cars had left the lot.

Detectives used this information to track down Donis, who was positively identified by the victim.

Detectives believe Donis is linked to another indecent exposure case that occurred on Tuesday.

If you have any information on additional victims, you're asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-TIPS or (800) 222-8477.
