BROWARD COUNTY, Fla. - Broward Sheriff's Office detectives believe a man who was arrested last month on accusations that he exposed his penis to a 14-year-old girl has targeted other people, authorities announced Wednesday.

Pedro Rivera Raymundo, 30, was initially arrested Nov. 12 on a charge of lewd and lascivious exhibition regarding the Nov. 7 incident involving the teen.

According to deputies, the girl was walking in the 5200 block of Southwest 100th Avenue in Cooper City when Raymundo stopped his car near her and asked for directions.

Deputies said Raymundo then exposed himself to the teen when she told him she couldn't help him.

The teen was able to get the license plate number of Raymundo's car, a dark-blue 2008 Lexus, authorities said.

Two days after Raymundo's arrest, an additional charge of indecent exposure of sexual organs was added regarding an Oct. 7 incident in Dania Beach.

Detectives believe Raymundo, who also goes by Peter, may have committed similar acts on unknown victims.

"It makes me feel more worried about my environment and to make sure that I'm going to be more careful," said Isabella King, who attends school near where the Cooper City incident occurred. "Cooper City is a very safe neighborhood, but there is always that one person that will be disgusting and just want to harm someone."

Students who spoke to Local 10 News reporter Todd Tongen Wednesday said a lot of children walk or ride their bikes home from school, and even though they say this is a safe neighborhood, they plan on traveling now in groups.

"I think that is crazy and there are many inappropriate, sick people in this world, unfortunately," Robert Sherman said. 

Anyone who believes they were victimized by Raymundo is asked to call Detective Christopher Neves at 954-435-2200, ext. 275.
