On Thursday, October 12th, San Ramon Valley Unified School District personnel notified the San Ramon Police Department of multiple students who came forward and reported witnessing lewd activity that occurred one week earlier.
On October 5th, at approximately 4:30 pm, two middle school students were walking on Bollinger Canyon Road near Blossom Ridge Lane. As they were walking, a male adult (described below) drove up to them in an older, dark gray, 4-door sedan. The male told the boy to walk away and asked the girl to come to his vehicle. When the she approached the vehicle, the male asked if she had a girlfriend and attempted to grab her shirt. She looked inside the vehicle, saw the male’s genitals were exposed, and that he was touching his genitals in an inappropriate manner. She immediately backed up from the vehicle and ran away.
On the same day (October 5th) at 5:00 pm, another female student reported seeing the same vehicle and suspect in the area of Bollinger Canyon Road and Main Branch Road. The male pulled his vehicle alongside this student and asked her several random questions before saying, “What’s your name?” After the male asked her this question, she turned around and ran away from him.
