Police in Jackson County's Columbia Township believe a man who exposed himself to a teenager last week is the same suspect wanted in similar incidents this year.

The most recent incident occurred Friday, May 20, on North Lake Road near the Columbia Options School. An 18-year-old female told police she was walking on North Lake Road around noon, when a male subject in a greenish Chrysler or Dodge minivan drove by her slowly and exposed himself to her.

Her description of the subject and vehicle fit the description of a similar incident that occurred in Cement City on approximately March 10, 2016, as well as another recent incident in Onsted.

Based on similar descriptions of the vehicle and suspect, a Michigan State Police sketch artist was arranged, and on Friday, May 27, 2016, the sketch artist met with the one witness that got the best look at the suspect. Police were also able to pull a picture of the van driving near the Columbia Options School from video surveillance.

Anyone recognizing the sketch, as well as the van, is asked to contact the Columbia Township Police Department at 517-592-3122.
