PRINCE GEORGE’S CO. – Police say they are searching for a man who exposed himself in front of a young child in Lewisdale on Saturday.

Officers were called to a business in the 2200 block of University Boulevard East around 7:30 p.m.

A mother and daughter were shopping together. When the mother faced away, that’s when police say the suspect exposed and touched himself in view of the daughter. The suspect did not touch the girl.

Police describe the suspect as a Hispanic male with a beard. He was wearing blue jeans, and a black and gray hat with gray shoes.

Police began canvassing the area around 5 p.m. Monday to try and gather additional information.

Detectives say that a man allegedly exposed himself to a child early last month at the same store. Police are trying to determine if that incident is related to this case. A suspect was not identified in that case.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 301-772-4908.
