HCSO-TV News Bulletin Video:
On April 21, 2015 the suspect while driving his 2004 Ford Explorer, blue in color, pulled up next to the victim as she walked along the side of the roadway. The suspect having his genitalia exposed and actively masturbating, called to the victim to get her attention and have her look into the vehicle. The victim observed the suspect, his genitalia and the fact he was masturbating.
It is believed that the same suspect is responsible for at least two other similar incidents. All of the victims are approximately the same age, between twelve and fourteen years old.
In each of the incidents the suspect would get the child's attention by asking them some generic question, have them approach the vehicle where he would be masturbating.
Detectives believe that there may be other incidents or victims which have gone unreported. Anyone with any information reference similar incidents are asked to contact the Sheriff's Office Juvenile Services Section at 813-247-0898.
