Police release sketch of suspected flasher

Tuesday June 26, 2012

LEE -- Police here issued a composite sketch of a man who exposed himself to a pair of teenage girls in town and who may be connected to similar incidents in Lenox and Pittsfield.

The likeness of the white male is based on descriptions given by the two teenagers who were accosted by the suspect in public a couple of weeks ago, ac cording to Lee Police Chief Joseph Buffis.

"We hope the picture will give way to some leads in the case," Buffis said on Monday. "If anything, it will raise people's awareness that the man is still out there."

According to police, the girls were on an unspecified street recently when the man drove up and exposed himself in a lewd manner.

The girls told officers they believed the man with buzz cut-style hair is in his 20s or 30s and is average in height and build. He may be wearing prescription eyeglasses. He was driving a blue or dark-colored SUV, possibly a Jeep Liberty.

Anyone with information can call Lee Police at (413) 243-5530.

Lee Police say the incident may be related to cases in Lenox on June 1 and in Pittsfield in late April. In both cases, a man committed similar lewd acts in front of teenage girls.

The two teenage girls victimized by the flasher in Lenox said the vehicle had Massachusetts plates.
