The Orange County district attorney's office is seeking the public's assistance in identifying potential victims of a man who allegedly exposed himself to an adult and three minors while on their way to school in Fountain Valley and Santa Ana.
John Rodriguez, 20, of Santa Ana is charged with one felony count of attempted sexual battery, four misdemeanor counts of indecent exposure and three misdemeanor counts of child annoyance, according to prosecutors. He faces a maximum of three years and six months in prison and will have to register as a sex offender, if convicted.
He pleaded not guilty Monday and is scheduled for a pretrial Thursday, according to the Orange County district attorney's office.
Rodriguez allegedly approached a 15-year-old girl to ask for directions. She was walking to Los Amigos High School in Fountain Valley on Jan. 25. When she stopped to give him directions, he allegedly exposed himself, then grabbed her wrist from the passenger side's window to pull her inside his car, prosecutors said.
