GLASTONBURY, Conn. (WTNH) — Glastonbury Police want the public to be on the lookout for a man who is jogging around town and exposing himself to young girls.
They say it has now happen multiple times since the first report on May 14th.
“There’s some young girls between 8 and 13 saw some guy jogging apparently without his underwear on or something creepy like that,” said Glastonbury resident Linda Hovanec.
It first happened six weeks ago in Riverfront Park, and yes, it was pretty creepy.
“Two young girls reported that a male’s private parts were exposed through his shorts while he was stretching,” said Glastonbury Police Lt. Corey Davis, obviously putting air quotes around “stretching.”
This week, two more girls called police about the same thing happening both in Riverfront Park and the Hubbard Green.
“It’s just really wacky to hear about somebody doing something like that around here,” said Glastonbury resident Dave Schaefer. “It’s a quiet area around here, but maybe that’s what they target, you know?”
Maybe, because once police put the word out on Facebook, they heard from several more girls who said they saw the man as well. The description of the flasher is pretty vague: A dark haired, younger man, average height and build.
“As of right now we don’t know who it is, but we’re hoping with the more complaints that come in from the media attention, that we’ll be able to get a more detailed description and narrow that down,” Lt. Davis said.
So far, the jogger has only flashed girls aged 8-13, and with no grownups around. All the grownups we spoke with said they will now be on the lookout.
“We walk every morning and would not appreciate seeing that,” said Hovanec. “Luckily, we have not, but I guess we’re not in his age group, but we definitely will keep an eye out for him.”
Glastonbury police want to hear from anybody who has experienced this flasher, but the most important thing is, if you see this happening, please call police right away at 860-652-4284 so they can try to catch the suspect.
