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.
