A Palmdale man has been arrested for exposing himself to a woman in a park earlier this month. According to the L.A. Sheriff's Department, 33-year-old Esvin Donis was lingering around the Desert Sands Park when a 23-year-old woman noticed him staring at her. She went to the bathroom to get away from him, only to find Donis waiting for her and fully exposed when she came out.

She screamed and scared him off, but then got her wits about her and wrote down the license plate numbers of a few cars in the parking lot. Donis was later identified via his license plate, and was arrested yesterday.

Donis is being held on $20,000 bail. Police think that he might be involved in another incident of indecent exposure, and ask anybody with information to call Detective Saylor of the Palmdale Sheriff’s Station Detective Bureau at 661-272-2474.
