Authorities have reported that a 26-year-old Fallbrook man was arrested today, Wed., May 15, on charges of indecent exposure dating back to an incident that occurred February 27. Sgt. Patrick Yates said detectives arrested Christopher Harvey today about 12:30 p.m. in connection with the incident. Harvey was booked into the Vista jail.

Yates said, at approximately 10 a.m. on February 27, “deputies received a radio call to investigate a report of indecent exposure at South Mission Road and Winterhaven Road in Fallbrook.”

“The 16-year-old female victim stated that she was dropped off at the bus stop on the corner of South Mission Road and Winterhaven Road to go to school. She noticed a white Mercedes-Benz make a u-turn into the residential area and park in a red zone across the street. As she walked eastbound on Winterhaven Road towards Ivy High School, the male in the vehicle started to drive slowly next to her and eventually stopped his vehicle next to her.”

The victim said when she looked over at him “his pants were off and she saw his exposed [genitals].” The victim stated that the suspect was touching himself and looking at her.

Yates said, “When she grabbed her phone to call the police, he left.”

“During the investigation conducted by Detective Dan Laibach, a suspect by the name of Patrick Christopher Harvey, age 26 was identified as a potential suspect,” said Yates. “An arrest warrant for Section 314 of the Penal Code, Indecent Exposure was issued.”

    It wouldn’t be a bad idea for the Sheriff’s Department to have one of their patrol cars
    parked on Winterhaven during the morning hours before school . That side of the school has some pretty rank looking characters over there……………….and they’re the students.

    remember folks, this is a "potential" suspect, often times, the police want to fill their quota so fast, that they’ll take anyone in. Also, the supreme court allows them to lie to anyone for any reason, so how do we really know it was him?
