Sketch released of suspect involved in at least 6 indecent exposure incidents in Kingwood area
HOUSTON (KTRK) -- After allegedly showing too much of himself to other people, police are showing a sketch of that suspect in their search to track him down.
The search is on for the man wanted for flashing people on at least half a dozen occasions at the same apartment complex in the Kingwood area. Police have been able to get a good description of him from the victims, but so far they have yet to catch him.
According to police, the suspect has been doing this for a while. There have been at least six reports with the first offense dating back to November; the most recent was late last month.
Police say the suspect typically lurks around stairwells in the Discovery at Kingwood apartments at 150 Northpark Plaza Drive.
The incidents have been reported between the hours of 11pm and 1:30am, when the man has confronted women returning to their apartments, and exposing himself.
"Someone who's doing this, who is an exposer, at some point they can escalate that," said Houston Police Officer Dwayne Ulrich. "And, of course, we want to catch this guy before this thrill isn't enough for him."
The incidents occurred on the following dates and times:
- November 28, 2012 - 11:05pm
- December 2, 2012 - 11:50pm
- December 31, 2012 - 12:25am
- February 17, 2013 - 12:01am
- April 6, 2013 - 10:15pm
- April 20, 2013 - 1:15am
The suspect is described only as a white male in his 30s, about 6 feet tall with a slender build. He is believed to have shaved his head to change his appearance.
In at least one of the incidents, the suspect was seen leaving in a white 2009-2012 four-door Nissan Altima. He wore various clothing during the incidents, including a dark hoodie, a black long sleeve shirt, a dark blue jogging suit or gray T-shirt and no pants.
Police have stepped up patrols around the apartments. They've also had officers just camp out for a while as a deterrent.
Anyone with information in these cases or on the identity of the wanted suspect is urged to contact the HPD Kingwood Patrol Station at 281-913-4500 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
Crime Stoppers will pay up to $5,000 for any information called in to the 713-222-TIPS (8477) or submitted online at www.crime-stoppers.org that leads to the filing of felony charges or arrest of the suspect(s) in this case.
