A Seattle prolific offender is accused of exposing himself to children, masturbating in public, and repeated stalking.

One mother told The Ari Hoffman Show on Talk Radio 570 KVI: that Verindra Knorr is "an early twenties transient that has a history of exposing himself to women in public."

"My 7-year-old daughter and her 9-year-old friend were playing outside our home in Olympic Hills a couple evenings ago when he approached them and exposed himself. Thankfully a woman walking by called the police while the girls came inside to let us know," she said.

According to the mother, "The police promptly responded and were able to detain him, then came to ask us some questions. It's then I learned of his history (12 arrests) of masturbating in public, all in the same area of North Seattle. This also happened just a few blocks from my daughter's school. Of his 12 arrests, all charges have been dismissed and he was released back to the streets."

The mother posted about the April 28 incident on Facebook and was contacted by more victims from the neighborhood.

Despite his extensive list of priors, Knorr is only facing misdemeanor charges and has not been charged after previous incidents. According to one police report obtained by Hoffman, the suspect had multiple prior arrest but "He did not have any prior convictions… he has been arrested for indecent exposure numerous times."

Victims say "V," as he is known locally, is a sexual predator that terrorizes the community. Neighbors said that he exposes himself on a daily basis and stalks women in the area. One neighbor reported that V targeted her repeatedly and attacked her.

Knoor was arrested, only to be released and return just days later to harass people in the apartment complex where he does not live.

According to Feb 2022 competency assessment, "Knoor denied all symptoms of mental illness, He presented with poor insight into his current presentation. During the interview, he presented with auditory hallucinations, persecutory ideation, impoverished thought processes, and impaired attention and concentration. Due to his intrusive symptoms, the information provided by Mr. Knoor was not considered reliable."

Knoor also "denied a mental health diagnosis when asked, stating, 'No! No! Of course not!'"

Regarding substance abuse, "He provided the same response when asked about medication and added 'except for drugs.' Additionally, When asked when he last consumed alcohol, Mr. Knoor stated, 'five minutes ago.'"

"Mr. Knoor endorsed recent use of methamphetamine. When asked the last time he had used methamphetamine, he responded, 'like five days ago.' [Note: He had been in jail for about 13-days.] When asked the month he last used, he stated 'uh. Okay. Uhm. Five days ago.' He endorsed using intravenously for perhaps 'a year' 'every day.' He stated that he used methamphetamine 'to unconcentrate.'"

Knoor also has a documented history of mental health diagnoses and treatment beginning in adolescence, as well as several forensic evaluations. His diagnoses have consistently related to a presentation of psychotic symptoms and substance use.

He was ruled incompetent to stand trial however was denied a civil commitment and was released.

Following the incident on April 28, he was arrested again and arraigned Tuesday. He is being held on $75,000 bail on two counts of gross misdemeanor indecent exposure to a person under 14 years old and 1 count of misdemeanor indecent exposure.

The court ordered another mental evaluation and Knoor’s father asked for him to get help rather than the system "supporting" him. However, due to the fact that the charges are again misdemeanors and not felonies, there is the possibility that Knoor will be released again.

Neighbors at another apartment complex told Kiro 7, "Every time I leave my apartment building, I look for him. We're terrorized by this man every single day. And the courts should be ashamed."

One of the victim's mother told the outlet, "He knows that he can get released in this loophole in a system that we have. And ultimately somebody’s going to get hurt. A woman or a child will be hurt by him." She added, "I walk around with a knot in my stomach knowing he'll be released soon."
