Chesterfield Police Searching for Flashers in Shopping Areas

Posted: Updated:

CHESTERFIELD (WRIC) - Chesterfield Police are on the lookout for several people accused of exposing themselves at some popular shopping centers. 

Police have already dealt with six cases of indecent exposure this year, four of which are all in the same area but have different suspect descriptions.

The most recent one happened at the Town Plaza strip mall on Midlothian where someone flashed a victim while sitting in his car.

"I shop here on a regular basis, and to hear something like that, it's very disturbing," says shopper Roz Brown.

There was even more concern from a business in that same lot: Monkey Joe's, a popular place for families with young kids.

"I think us being a kids establishment, I don't think that's good for business or good for kids to see," says Brianna Sutton.

One incident happened at the Midlothian Wal-Mart, but police settled it after the victim didn't want to move forward.

The other two incidents were in residential areas.

In most cases, a suspect flashed a victim as they drove or walked by.

Detectives have different suspects for each and are working to determine if any of the incidents are related.

In the meantime, they urge shoppers in the area to use caution.

The suspect in the recent exposure at the town center parking lot was described as white, 5' 11" with stocky build and driving a black SUV.

If you know anything about that incident, call Crime Solvers at 748-0660.
