A Daly City man has been arrested in connection with exposing himself to a ride-hailing service driver on Wednesday.
The 30-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of indecent exposure and carrying a concealed dirk or dagger, according to the San Mateo Police Department.
On Wednesday at 3:59 p.m., officers responded to the 300 block of N. Kingston Street on a report of a passenger who exposed himself to a ride-hailing service driver.
The victim, a 23-year-old woman, told police she picked up the passenger, later identified as Holmes, from the Bridgepointe Shopping Center at around 3:45 p.m.
As they were driving on U.S. Highway 101, the man started talking about sex, and when the victim told him she did not want to discuss sex with him, he exposed himself and started masturbating, police said.
The victim then took the first exit off the highway and ordered the male passenger out of her vehicle.
The man then exited the vehicle and asked the victim if she wanted to see his genitalia, police said.
According to the media release, responding officers created “a ruse” and quickly located the suspect nearby at the intersection of Core Avenue and N. Bayshore Boulevard, and he was taken into custody without incident.
During his arrest, the man was found to be in possession of a concealed steak knife.
