55 year old man arrested for exposing himself near Murrieta Valley High School

Murrieta, California - On Monday, 4-18-16 at 117pm officers responded to the area of Washington Avenue and Davenport Way regarding a suspicious male and vehicle.  The reporting party was a 17-year-old female and a Murrieta Valley High School student.  

As the female was walking home from school, a newer model silver Ford Focus pulled alongside her and the driver began talking to the female.  The female noticed that the male had exposed himself to her and was performing a sex act while he was seated in the car.  The male subject left the area and the female called the police department.  Officers checked the area for the vehicle and male with negative results.

On Tuesday, 4-19-16 at 258pm hours dispatch received a call from an off-duty law enforcement officer who saw a suspicious male, seated in a vehicle and attempting to talk with teenaged girls as they walked by.  The off-duty officer contacted the subject in the area of Washington Avenue and Nighthawk Way and detained him until Murrieta Police officers arrived.  As Murrieta officers were conversing with the subject, the subject became uncooperative and a brief struggle ensued.  


The subject was taken into custody without further incident and was found to be intoxicated.  The subject was later identified by the female as the same subject that she saw the day before.  The subject was identified as David Charles Fruge—a 55-year-old Murrieta resident.
