The Detroit Police Department is seeking the public's help in locating and identifying a suspect wanted for exposing himself on the city's west side.

At about 10:30 a.m. April 18, a 67-year-old woman was walking east on W. McNichols at Schaefer when she was approached by a suspect with his genitals exposed.

He then reportedly asked her to perform a sexual act. As she ran into a nearby store, police say the suspect followed her, but then fled north on Schaefer on foot. 

Police describe the suspect as wearing a dark colored baseball cap with a red colored patch on the front, a light gray hoodie, dark colored vest, jeans and possibly black and white shoes.

If anyone recognizes the suspect or has any information pertaining to the crime, please call DPD's Sex Crimes Unit at 313-596-1950 or CRIMESTOPPERS at 1-800-SPEAK-UP.
