BALTIMORE — Since September 4th, three women have filed police reports involving a naked man approaching them in various neighborhoods throughout the city.

"It's really disturbing," said Kelly Ehrlich. "His car was parked out front of my house. A neighbor actually had run in with him. He was on the nearby steps yelling."

The recent incident happened in the 1100 block of S. Decker in Canton after 11 p.m.

That's when police say the suspect usually acts.

"He tries to get women's attention," said Officer Jasman Payne. "He's either naked from the waist down or completely without clothes. We're asking people to check their home surveillance to see if they have pictures. We need to identify him so we can charge him."

The suspect is described as a white male in his 40's with a gray beard and an apparent beer belly. He's also been seen driving a silver car. Unfortunately, the make and model are unknown.

According to police and witnesses, the suspect conceals the make and model with a yoga mat.

Police say incident reports were filed for by individual on

-September 4, 2020 in 1100 Block of Decker Avenue

-September 27, 2020 in the 3100 block of Fait Avenue

-October 7, 2020 in the 3300 block of Foster Avenue

There was also an incident on September 26, 2020 in the 1100 block of Highland Avenue. However, no police/incident report was Formally filed. Investigators did look at the Ring video from a nearby home capturing the suspect walking down the sidewalk as a woman yelled at him off screen.

"Someone was able to take a picture of it," said Ehrlich. "Clearly he has a motive and he knows what he's doing if he hasn't been caught."

Police believe there may be more women who've encountered the suspect.

"We're encouraging everyone to file report," said Officer Payne. "Sometimes someone might think it's not worth reporting an incident or for whatever reason, maybe trauma, a woman might not feel comfortable talking to a male officer. Know you can always request a female officer. We're compassionate. Some of us are vets. We're empathetic."

Anyone with pictures, video or other information about the suspect is asked to contact Officer Payne. She can be reached at I262@baltimorecity.gov or jasman.payne@baltimorepolice.org
