Police in Palm Coast Florida (Flagler County) are searching for a short black male, 5' 2" who is riding a black motorcycle and exposing himself to women.
According to News Channel 4 out of Jacksonville, detectives say four different women have reported that a black male fitting the description has either exposed himself or masturbated in front of women and then fled on a small black motorcycle.
The incidents occurred on July 27, August 11, August 15 and August 26.
Police give this advice to anyone who may come into contact with a threatening male.
- Practice good situational awareness: Be aware of who is around you, both walking and anyone parked nearby. Ninety percent of self-defense is awareness; 10 percent is physical.
- Scream or yell in a loud voice if someone approaches you in a threatening manner. Screaming “Back off!” or “Get back!” to alert bystanders is the No. 1 thing you can do to get help and maybe even save your life.
- Listen to your instincts: If something or someone seems suspicious, turn around, go another way.
- If possible, walk before dark. Walk in well-lit areas. Take another person with you, if possible.
- Provide a good description: Be able to describe a suspect’s clothes, appearance, height, weight, hair and eye color, race, sex and vehicle.
- Unless the situation dictates otherwise, do not confront or take matters into your own hands. Be a good witness and call law enforcement immediately.
- If you see something suspicious in Flagler County, say something by calling 911 immediately.
