Schmidt apparently started terrorizing the residents in the 7000 block of Rainier Avenue South in late August. That was when police received their first report of a nekkid, masturbating man driving around the neighborhood. The woman who called to report that particular incident told police the man drove by her home and then returned an hour later, all nekkid and rubbing himself and stuff. She said he appeared to be looking at a group of children playing nearby. The woman’s husband reported having seen the same man doing the same thing about three or four weeks prior.
Another woman told police she first witnessed the man tickling his pickle in late May. According to charging papers, the 27-year-old woman said the alleged flounder pounder passed her home about nine times. She told police she was able to snap a photo several times. Heh… pervert. She saw him again on August 21 and photographed his truck. Also according to her, the nekkid crank yanker passed by her home 15 times when he returned to the hood on August 27.
She counted. I can almost see her there, behind the curtains and fogged glass, anxiously awaiting his return…..
“It seemed to her that when the male approached the people or children playing, he would slow down. It’s as if he wanted people to notice him,” a Seattle detective said in charging papers.
After reviewing photos of the truck, police identified Schmidt as the willy whipper. Schmidt, though, has reportedly denied exposing himself to anyone.
“The defendant is a danger to the community based on the alarming frequency and indiscriminate nature of his offending … which potentially exposes not only adults but minors,” Senior Deputy Prosecutor Carol Spoor said recently in court papers.
Schmidt has been charged with two counts of felony indecent exposure, and $15,000 warrant for his arrest has been issued. He has a previous conviction – he was busted for wiggling his willy at a barista in Snohomish County.Tags: drive-by masturbator, Indecent Exposure, Seattle, Steven Schmidt, Washington
