According to Delaware State Police, the alleged incident at 36 Jerome Drive took place around 3:30 a.m. That’s when a 54-year-old woman

checked out at a register and a man followed her out of the store and began a conversation.

At one point, police said, as the woman was facing away from the man, he reached into his pants and exposed himself, pressing up against her and startling her, police alleged.

The man then fled the area in a tan/gold colored SUV with possible Delaware registration, police said. Further investigation revealed the same person allegedly had placed his hand on the back of a 31-year-old woman as she was checking out approximately 20 minutes earlier. The woman was offended by his actions and informed the man to keep his hands to himself before the two went separate ways, police said.

The suspect depicted in the surveillance images was described as a white male between age 30 to 40, 5-foot-5 to 5-foot-11 tall wearing a black and white head cover, blue/green shirt, dark pants and sneakers. He may be operating a tan/gold colored SUV with possible Delaware registration, police said.

State police ask anyone with information to contact Sgt. J. Lloyd at 698-8434. Information may also be provided by calling Delaware Crime Stoppers at (800) TIP-3333, at www.delaware.crimestoppersweb.com or by sending an anonymous tip by text to 274637 (CRIMES) using the keyword “DSP.”
