Today at approximately 2:53 p.m. campus security received a call from 911 dispatch informing us that they were looking for a man described to them as a hispanic male, approximately 5’10” tall, heavy build, wearing a black shirt and black and blue camouflage pants, accused of indecent exposure. The individual was last seen on 202nd. Security was immediately dispatched to patrol the area around east campus parking lots and 202nd to look for anyone matching this description.

As security was arriving in the area they noted police vehicles on 68th and in our parking lots. Shortly after arriving the security officer observed police pulling up in front of Triton Court.

At the same time, which was approximately 3:05 p.m., our security director was informed by a Lynnwood police officer that they were on the scene at Triton Court and they had the suspect in custody.

Campus Safety & Security is working closely with Lynnwood Police Department to supply video footage of the incident. Video shows an individual leaving Triton Court who is then confronted by the man pictured below. He is seen on camera moving towards the reporting person as they move back to the front door of Triton Court and re-enter the building. The aggressor pushes past the reporting person and goes into Triton Court.

This situation was resolved quickly in large part because of the reporting person’s quick thinking to go back inside and, due to bystanders who intervened.

Edmonds College is grateful for the coordination and quick response between our campus security and Lynnwood Police Department. A trespass notice was issued to the aggressor. He is not permitted on Edmonds College property per this order. It is possible the aggressor will be released. If you see him on campus please call campus security immediately at 425.754.0154. If he acts aggressively, call 911 first.

Per the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office jail, charges currently pending in this case include two counts of Burglary and three counts of Indecent Exposure with Sexual Motivation. Please note, these charges are not all related to activity on our campus. The individual was already being sought by police. At the time of his arrest we learned he was reported to have gone into other residences off campus and had exposed himself to others.

Suspect 4/10/2024

If you have further information about this situation please call Lynnwood Police at 425.407.3999 and reference case #2024-11975.

What if It Snows?

In inclement weather, Edmonds College typically makes decisions regarding emergency closures or class cancellations by 5 a.m. for day classes and 3 p.m. for evening classes (or as early as circumstances allow). Then we start getting the word out. See campus weather conditions web page for periodically updated images of conditions on campus.

The college seeks to stay open to fulfill its mission whenever possible — so, most likely, it will be classes as usual for the college — but individuals should protect their own health and safety. Take care of yourself and be safe!
