Accused Target Flasher Under Arrest

A 48-year-old San Francisco man was arrested Tuesday on suspicion  of exposing himself to children on multiple occasions at a Target store in  Cupertino, the Santa Clara County Sheriff's office announced today.

Deputies with the Sexual Assault Felony Enforcement Task Force  arrested Paul Stone at about noon in Mountain View.

The arrest followed a three-week investigation during which he was  captured on a surveillance camera at a Target store located at 20745 Stevens  Creek Blvd.

The sheriff's office said that Stone was seen exposing himself to  two children at Target on two occasions, but managed to evade store security  each time. The security team compiled a description from the children's  mother and monitored the store to find his match.

When Stone returned for the third time on April 10, security  members immediately recognized him and called the sheriff's office to give  deputies Stone's license plate number, but he got away yet again.

Stone's luck ran out on Tuesday when he was booked into the Santa  Clara County Main Jail on three counts of indecent exposure with a prior  conviction and two counts of annoying and/or molesting a child. His bail was  set at $60,000.

Anyone with information about this incident or similar incidents  is encouraged to contact Detective Cordero at 408- 808-4300.
