Lakeport police Tuesday wanted help from the public in identifying a man suspected of exposing himself to a woman as she walked in town.

The woman contacted police at about 3:45 p.m. Monday to say the man had driven up to her in a sedan and asked her if she needed a ride.

She declined and the man drove off. She said he returned within minutes and made a sexual gesture then exposed his genitals to her, police reported.

She was on Lakeshore Boulevard between Beach Lane and Lange Street.

The car was a late 1990s, white, four-door Toyota sedan. He was white, 25-30 years with shaggy brown ear-length hair. He wore a black T-shirt and jeans.

Chief Brad Rasmussen asked anyone with information to contact officers 263-5491.
