A Costa Mesa man is facing charges of exposing himself to teenage girls as they walked to school in Santa Ana.

Authorities arrested 47-year-old Alfredo Landaverde on Friday at a traffic stop at Fairview Street and Warner Avenue in Santa Ana.

Investigators say police saw a vehicle matching the one reported in several indecent exposure incidents near schools. Landaverde was also positively identified by multiple victims.

The reported crimes began in October and run as recently as Thursday.

Detectives think he may have also committed similar crimes in Fountain Valley and Costa Mesa. If you have any information about this case, you're urged to contact the Santa Ana Police Department.
