San Francisco Man Accused of Driving to Burbs to Expose Himself to Kids at Target

Don't San Franciscans know they have to keep their nudity WITHIN city limits?

Apparently not. The San Jose Mercury News reported today that a 48-year-old San Francisco man, Paul Stone, was arrested on Tuesday for exposing himself to children at a Cupertino Target two times this month. While San Francisco children could see that and a whole lot more from, say, the Castro nudists or on Baker Beach, when you go playing peek-a-boo in suburban supermarkets it's apparently a whole different deal.  

First, Stone "raised and lowered" his shorts to expose himself to two kids on April 1 at the store on 20745 Stevens Creek Boulevard, while their mother's back was turned. The store was put on watch to look for him if ever tried his shorts-raising trick again -- and lo and behold, a few days later, he did.

On April 10, Stone returned to the same Target yet again. Security

called the sheriff's office, but Stone made off once more without

getting caught, although someone did get his license plate number,

according to reports.

The cops finally caught up with him on

Tuesday in Mountain View and arrested him, charging him with three

counts of indecent exposure and two counts of annoying and/or molesting

a child. (If only we knew there was a law against annoying a child when

we were young....)

Stone's bail is set at $60,000. If you have

any info on similar incidents -- apparently there have been convictions

in Stone's past -- call Detective Cordero at (408) 808-4300.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
