TIMELY WARNING: Chapel Hill Police Investigating Indecent Exposure Incident


Town of Chapel Hill Police Seek Help in Identifying Indecent Exposure Suspect

The Chapel Hill Police Department is currently seeking help in identifying a suspect who allegedly exposed himself to a passerby early yesterday morning in an off-campus area near Granville Towers and the Fraternity Court off West Cameron Avenue.  The man asked the victim for directions and waited for the victim to approach his vehicle.  As she did, she noticed that he was unclothed from the waist down.  He then attempted to grab her by the arm and she fled the area.  The suspect is described as a 30-40-year old Hispanic male, with a short haircut and no facial hair.  He was last seen in a red four-door sedan.

An additional report of a suspicious person was made a short time later.  This incident appears to have occurred in the same area at around the same time, and it involved a suspect of the same description.  However, no indecent exposure was committed during this second incident, as the passerby left the area without speaking to the suspect.

If anyone has information concerning the identity or whereabouts of this individual, please call the Chapel Hill Police Department at 919-968-2760 or Crime Stoppers at 919-942-7515.  Calls to Crime Stoppers are confidential and anonymous, and the caller may be eligible for a cash reward up to $2,000 for information that leads to arrest.
