Polk City Groping/Exposure.

Media Contact : Brian Bruchey, PIO

person of interestShortly before 1:00 a.m. on Tuesday, May 3rd, at the Dixie Boy Travel Center (1821 SR559) in Polk City, a woman exited the store and was groped by an unknown white male suspect. 

The victim quickly got into her vehicle, and the suspect exposed himself and pressed himself against the victim's car window. 

The suspect is described as being about 5'08" - 5'10" with curly, dirty blonde, shoulder-length hair. 

The victim later reported to PCSO investigators that she discovered on Facebook that a similar incident occurred to someone else in Tampa, and the suspect in that case looked very similar to the suspect from the Polk City case. 

Detective Townes is trying to identify the man seen here (from video taken in the Dixie Boy Travel Center) so he could speak with him about this case. If you recognize this man, please contact Detective Townes at 863-944-9717 (Case #22-18823).
