Police: Man Exposed Himself to Woman at Rosslyn Business

Arlington police are searching for a man who allegedly exposed himself to an employee at a Rosslyn business last week.

County police believe the man struck up a conversation with a woman working in a shop along the 1800 block of N. Oak Street last Wednesday (Aug. 29), then “began touching himself inappropriately and exposed himself.” The area is home to businesses including a cafe, a Subway and a hair salon.

Police say the man fled the store before officers could make it to the scene.

They describe him as a “dark-skinned black male in his early 30s, with dreadlocks, wearing a white tank top, black shorts and carrying a black backpack,” and are still investigating the incident.
