Police on the Lookout for W&OD Trail Flasher

Police searched a portion of the W&OD Trail near East Falls Church this morning after a woman reported that a man had jumped out of the bushes and flashed her.

The incident happened just after 11:00 this morning, on the trail in the area of Ohio Street, according to Arlington County Police spokesman Dustin Sternbeck. A woman told police that a white male, possibly in his mid-30s, jumped out of the bushes and exposed himself to her. The suspect then ran off, heading west on the trail, wearing jeans and a black sweatshirt.

Police searched the area around the trail but were unable to locate the man.

The incident is similar to a string of indecent exposure incidents in early 2010. A man exposed himself to women at least 11 times along the W&OD Trail between January and March 2010. The incidents stopped after police issued a press release warning women to be on the lookout for suspicious activity along the trail.
