In a rather bizarre, creepy news post, I just wanted to make sure Bay Area readers are aware of an ongoing issue in Livermore.

Apparently there is some weirdo running around the Livermore area pulling down pants of women joggers — with six reported cases since 2007 — but details remain confusing.

It’s odd,” said Sgt. Paul Mayer, Livermore police Sgt., in a statement to the San Jose Mercury News. “It’s hard to wrap your mind around what he is trying to do. We’re not positive it is the same person, but we are treating it like it is.”

If you’re going to run alone, make sure you’re vigilant of the surroundings around you. Many of us run while listening to an MP3 player, but that can be extremely dangerous if you’re alone in isolated areas. Running safety experts recommend people listen to only one earbud, or at least turn down the volume to a reasonable level.
