Just a guy, riding a bus, minding his own business when five people boarded. That’s when he became a target.

“He was told to hand over his money or he’d be assaulted,” Phoenix Police Sgt. Jamie Rothschild said. “He did hand over some money to the suspects, but when he got off the bus he was assaulted anyway.”

It happened late Saturday afternoon, April 21, 2018 near 44th Street and Indian School Road.

There are surveillance pictures of the three men and two women who are suspects in the case.

Next, a perv targeting female shoppers in the ahwatukee area of Phoenix.

It happened in March and June of 2018 at a department store near Ray Road and 47th Street.

In one instance, he engaged a woman in the store in conversation.

“And it was later reported that the suspect exposed himself to the woman during that encounter,” said Rothschild.

In the other incident, it’s believed that he was touching himself inappropriately, prompting the victim to report him.

The suspect is a heavyset white man around 60 who may be missing a tooth on the right side of his mouth. It’s believed he drove away in a red, older model, four-door sedan.
