Mother spots man exposing himself, snaps picture of car

RENTON, Wash. -- There were some scary moments Wednesday morning for a Renton mother during her daily walk.

She said a strange man stalked her and her young child and then did something so graphic she had to call police.

That mother said she was walking down the street with her young son when the same vehicle passed them several times.

When she spotted the driver not wearing any pants and fondling himself, she grabbed her phone and snapped a picture.

“I don’t know what else to do,” said the mother named Karina, who is so shaken by the experience that she’s asked to only be identified by her first name.

She snapped a photo of the driver’s car moments after she spotted him with his pants down around his ankles.

“I looked at him like, really?” she said. “Really, you did that?”

Karina called police and shared the photo with detectives. She said the driver is Hispanic and is in his 20s or 30s. She added the man is clean-shaven and wears a black ponytail.

She couldn’t believe the stranger would be so brazen in front of her little boy.

“I loaded up my pockets with rocks honestly,” she said. “Cause if he comes back I’m just going to bomb his car.”

“We have to get the word out because it’s disgusting,” said Karina’s sister Itzel.

Renton police are investigating the incident.
