PALO ALTO - Police have released a sketch of a man who exposed his genitals in a Palo Alto park where children were playing Friday evening.
Police said two women were at Seale Park at 3100 Stockton Place around 5 p.m. when they saw a man walk into the park with his penis exposed through the open zipper of his pants.
The man walked into the playground area without saying anything or attempting to make contact with either of the women or their children, police said.
He then hopped over a two-foot fence surrounding the playground and was last seen walking south on Stockton Place.
The man is described as a black man estimated to be around 45 years old, about 6 feet tall and weighing roughly 170 pounds with a thin build, according to police.
Police have also released an image of the suspect captured on a neighbor's surveillance camera as he left the park.
