Park police searching for indecent exposure suspect in Kensington area -- Gazette.Net


Park police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a man they said was spotted exposing himself near a park playground in the Kensington-Garrett Park area late last month.

The man, who police believe to be in his mid 30s, was seen by a passer-by on the trail touching himself near the playground area of Veirs Mill Local Park at 4425 Garrett Park Road around noon on Oct. 20, said Detective Sgt. Pam Skaife, who is investigating the case with the county park police division.

“A woman was taking a walk and when she got down by the park area she noticed in a grassy area a man laying down masturbating,” Skaife said. “Not too far from there there is a playground where there was a children’s party going on at the time [and] while he wasn’t watching the kids or anything, that’s obviously not something that we want going on in the park.”

He was last seen wearing a white shirt and a white biking cap, leading police to believe he may be a frequent trail-user, Skaife said.

“The witness did not see him leave but there were some tire tracks underneath the bridge nearby so he may have had a bike under there,” Skaife said.

Anyone with any information about the identity of the suspect should reach out to Skaife at 301-962-1668 or at Callers can remain anonymous and should reference the park police case number: 12001410.
