Police are looking for a man who exposed himself to a woman downtown this week near Granville Towers and Fraternity Court.
The man, who was driving a red, four-door sedan, asked a passerby for directions Sunday and waited for her to approach his vehicle, police reported in a new release. As the woman approached the car, police said, she noticed the man was naked from the waist down. The man attempted to grab her arm, and the woman fled the area.
Police described the man as a 30- to 40-year-old Hispanic male, with a short haircut and no facial hair. They did not provide any other characteristics.
Witnesses also reported a short time later seeing a person fitting the same description in the same area at around the same time. The witnesses in that incident left the area without approaching or speaking to the man, police said.
Anyone with information about the suspect or where he might be found are asked to call the Chapel Hill Police Department at 919-968-2760 or Crime Stoppers at 919-942-7515.
Calls to Crime Stoppers are confidential and anonymous, and the caller may be eligible for a cash reward up to $2,000 for information that leads to arrest.
