Rochester police looking for suspect in exposure cases

Posted:

ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- Rochester police are looking for help in finding a man who may be responsible for two recent exposure cases that left local women running for help.

Police say the two women were either walking or jogging when the man threatened their personal well-being and they ran to safety.

The first incident was reported at about 8:20 a.m. Wednesday. A local woman was jogging on the 700 block of West Silver Lake Drive Northeast and was confronted by a man who exposed himself. The woman ran home and called police.

Then, police say, just 20 minutes later, another woman was walking on the 400 block of 2nd Avenue Southwest when she was approached by a man who drove up next to her and made threatening sexual comments to her. The woman ran inside her home and called police.

Police believe the same man may be responsible for both incidents, as the suspect descriptions are similar. They're looking for a white man in his 20's with short, thick medium brown hair.

Police say he was driving an older, light blue 4-door car.

If you think you may know who this person is, you're asked to call Crimestoppers at 800-222-TIPS.
