A California police officer was arrested on Thursday after he was accused of exposing himself to five women, ages 12 to 80.
KABC reported that 33-year-old LAPD Officer Ryan Eric Galliher was charged with “attempting to commit a lewd act with a 12-year-old girl; one felony count of contacting a minor with the intent to commit a lewd act; five misdemeanor counts of indecent exposure; and one misdemeanor count of engaging in lewd conduct.”
Galliher was first arrested on suspicion of committing a lewd act in late last month when two women, ages 18 and 19, identified him as the person who had exposed himself in the Bolsa Chica wetlands area while they were jogging on Oct. 20.
After an investigation, the Orange County District Attorney’s Office (OCDA) determined that Galliher had walked out on the same trail three days later and masturbated in public.
According to the OCDA’s Office, he also exposed himself to a 12-year-old girl on the Bolsa Chica wetlands trail in February, and asked her if she wanted to touch his penis.
A 43-year-old woman reported that the officer approached her in June wearing nothing but tennis shoes. The oldest of Galliher’s known victims was 80-years-old, the OCDA’s Office said.
Galliher was released after posting $100,000 bail. He has been placed on administrative leave by the LAPD.
Anyone who has information about the crimes or believes that they are a victim was urged to call HBPD Tip Line at (714) 375-5066 or Supervising District Attorney Investigator Mark Gutierrez at (714) 347-8864.

Giuliani’s potential witness tampering in Ukraine is impossible to separate from Trump: Judiciary Democrat
On Thursday's edition of MSNBC's "The Beat," Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) broke down how Rudy Giuliani's misconduct in Ukraine is "inseparable" from President Donald Trump's.
"To everyone who asks whether we are moving too quickly, I say the president's lawyer is moving quickly to continue to ask a foreign government to cheat our elections, and doing nothing is completely off the table," said Swalwell, who sits on the House Intelligence and Judiciary Committees, the two most crucial committees in the impeachment inquiry. "We have to secure our elections. We have powerful, uncontradicted evidence now. And now is the time to hold the president accountable and determine just which impeachment articles we should proceed with."
‘Why not cooperate?’ CNN’s Wolf Blitzer hammers Pence’s chief of staff over impeachment stonewalling
On Thursday's edition of CNN's "The Situation Room," anchor Wolf Blitzer challenged Vice President Mike Pence's chief of staff Marc Short to justify the administration's stonewalling of the impeachment inquiry.
"Wolf, the reality is that the last three years, they've been trying to overturn the will of the American people. They're trying to take away the votes of the American people," said Short. "This whole impeachment has been a sham. What they've tried to prove there is no proof of ... I think it sets a dangerous precedent."
"Here's what I don't understand," said Blitzer. "If the president has nothing to hide, it was a perfect phone call with the president of Ukraine, why not cooperate, provide the documents, why not let individuals go before the committees and testify?"
