“An arrest has been made in an indecent exposure incident in the North County.
On Tuesday, August 16 at around 1 p.m., a woman finished shopping at a grocery store in Oceanside and drove to her home in Vista. When the woman arrived at home, she realized she had been followed by a man she did not know. He then exposed himself to the victim before driving off in his car. She quickly called 9-1-1.
Deputies from the Vista Sheriff’s Station responded to the woman’s home and immediately searched the area. Despite their efforts, the suspect was not found.
In the days that followed, Sheriff’s Detectives began investigating the case. After talking to the victim and becoming aware of surveillance photos that captured the incident, detectives were able to identify the suspect as Anton Hill (DOB 9/4/98).
Detectives interviewed Hill at his home in Oceanside where he admitted to the crime.
On Friday, August 19, detectives obtained an arrest warrant for Hill. He was taken into custody and booked into the Vista Detention Facility on charges of indecent exposure.
The Vista Sheriff’s Station would like to thank the public and media for their assistance in helping solve this case.”
