    Seekonk Police

    Police have released a composite sketch as they continue to search for a man they say exposed himself to three teenage girls last month in Seekonk, Massachusetts.

    The man, who has not been identified, is accused of exposing himself to the girls on March 20 in the parking lot of a Target store at 79 Commerce Way.

    That week, Seekonk Police released surveillance photos of a man police say they would like to identify. Wednesday, they issued a sketch made by New Bedford Police Det. Lt. Scott Carola, who met with the victims.

    Police say the three teenagers came to the police department and reported noticing a man at Target who appeared to be watching them from a distance around 8 p.m.

    The incident happened Tuesday night in the parking lot of a Target store at 79 Commerce Way.

    (Published Thursday, March 22, 2018)

    Police say the teens became wary of the man and went to a register to check out, at which time the man was still watching them.

    As the girls were getting in their car, they saw the man in front of their vehicle, about 20 feet away, according to police.

    The teenagers reported that the man exposed himself to them.

    Police said the girls screamed, threatening to call police, at which point the man fled the scene.

    The suspect is described as medium build, about 5'6" tall, wearing a knit cap, dark-colored jacket and khaki pants.

    Seekonk police are concerned this may not be an isolated incident and are asking the public to contact them with any information at 508-336-8123, or anonymously at the Tips Line at 508-336-7027, extension 9, or email tips@seekonkpd.com.

    This incident remains under investigation.

    Police remind everyone to remain aware of their surroundings and the activities of people around them, reporting any suspicious people or conditions to your local police department immediately.
