Local police are seeking the public’s help to identify a man who exposed himself to two teenage girls yesterday (September 5) in the 16000 block of Hiddenbrook Road.

The two girls were approached by a white man, approximately six feet tall, with an athletic build, brown hair and a scruffy beard, according to police. The man made comments to the teens as they walked from a local pool and exposed himself to them. The girls reported the incident to an adult.

In a separate incident on Monday (September 3), a white man, also six feet tall, with an athletic build and brown hair, followed to two teenage girls on their bikes on a trail from Herndon Parkway near Winterwood Place. Police said the man made comments to the teens but did not expose himself. Police searched the area after the teens told their parents, but no one was found.

The police department issued the following information:

    Pardon me, but I don’t get it. Isn’t an “unshaven beard” a beard.

    • Lake Anne Resident

      More concerning is that it sounds like we have budding rapist in the area that is becoming more emboldened by their actions the longer they are not caught.

  • Why do you bother?

    It would help to know the times of the incidents.

    Now, if those two girls had exercised their 2A rights, this story would have a totally different ending.

    These girls should have pulled out their phones and started filming this dirty old man and got his picture. I’ve told my daughter that if she’s out in public and someone starts harassing her to pull out her phone and start harassing him back and saying I’m taking your picture so my dad can see what you look like. You won’t like my dad he’s mean.
