Deputies arrest a Loma Linda transient for annoying/molesting young females at a local park

DATE/TIME: November 20, 2017 2:42 p.m.

INCIDENT: PC 647.6 (a)(1)-Annoy Molest a Child

LOCATION: 25000 block of Entrada Del Parque, Loma Linda

SUSPECT: Thomas Jason Tompkins, 45-year-old male, Loma Linda transient

VICTIM(S): Confidential female juveniles

SUMMARY:
On Monday, November 20, 2017, Sheriff's Deputy B. Ortiz was assigned to the contract city of Loma Linda. Ortiz was patrolling the above area and conducting a routine security check of a local Loma Linda Park.

Ortiz observed suspicious activity involving an apparent transient subject, later identified as Thomas Jason Tompkins. Ortiz saw Tompkins placing himself in very close proximity to a group of young females at the park. It was evident to Ortiz that Tompkins was not related to the juveniles, but was showing an unusual amount of attention and intently staring at the minors.

At one point Tompkins began to remove some of his clothing exposing himself. Ortiz immediately detained him and determined Thompkins had an active arrest warrant. Ortiz initially arrested Tompkins for the warrant. After further investigation, Ortiz developed enough probable cause to believe that Tompkins was annoying and harassing the juveniles.

Ortiz arrested and booked Tompkins into the Central Detention Center. Ortiz charged Thompkins with PC 647.6 (a)(1) Annoying and Molesting a Child.

A photograph of Tompkins is attached. If the public suspects this person has committed a crime against them they are urged to contact Central Station at (909)387-3545.
