Upon arrival, deputies learned that the suspect approached a female jogger, touched her on the buttocks, and then exposed himself. The jogger acted quickly, pushing the male away. The suspect ran north towards the soccer fields.
The suspect is described as a black male, age 25-30 years old, 5’8-5’10 with a muscular build. He was wearing a dark shirt, grey jogging pants, and black and white shoes. If you are approached by a male matching this description on any of the trails or parks in that area, please report it to law enforcement immediately.
