MOON TOWNSHIP, Pa. —
Moon Township police are seeking help identifying a person of interest in an indecent exposure case.
Investigators said on several occasions female victims reported a man on the Montour Trail, nude from the waist down.
Police said on July 8, July 13, July 19 and July 24 a man fitting the witnesses’ description, was caught on a hidden camera placed on the trail by detectives.
Investigators said the man reportedly exposed and fondled himself on a portion of a trail that is out of view from traffic on Montour Run Road -- but in view of walkers on the trail.
“I think someone will be able to identify him and help us with this case,” said Moon Township Police Chief Leo McCarthy.
McCarthy said the man stands on a rock above the trail that reads, “Jesus Lives” and sometimes has a bag in front of him. Police said they think he may even put on a wig before he exposes himself.
Sue Letang said she usually walks alone along the trail, and police said the exposer is targeting single women at different times and different days of the week.
“I'll definitely be more aware and tell people where I am and how long I expect to be gone a little more, probably just a smart thing to do,” said Letang.
McCarthy recommends walking with a buddy and is concerned because he said this behavior can lead to more serious crimes.
“To where indecent exposure is not enough. Someone is grabbed, or abducted, or pulled into the leaves, or raped or perhaps even later murdered,” said McCarthy.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Moon Township police.
