Palo Alto, CA - Police have taken four reports since September 2008 about a man approaching teenaged girls in the area of Gunn High School, while driving a silver sedan. In two cases, the man asked the girls if they needed a ride. In two cases he called out to the victims and called them "pretty." In the final case, on January 1, 2009, the man exposed himself to the victims.

The man drives a distinctive Silver Ford Focus sedan with several decals adorning it, including the logo "Hot Wheels." He was contacted and identified by patrol Officer Dan Bybee on January 7, 2009. Subsequent investigation by Detective Sergeant Scott Wong led to his arrest yesterday.

Arrested was 31 year old Muni Vishwa NADAN, who uses the nickname "Nathan." He is a Fijian male with a short hair style. He stands 5'5" tall and weighs 140 pounds.

He was charged with one count of indecent exposure and booked into the Main Jail in San Jose. Bail was set at $10,000.

Police ask that anyone recognizing the description of this suspect or vehicle, or anyone with any information about these or similar incidents, call Detective Sergeant Scott Wong at 650-329-2140.
