SUBJECT: Detectives Attempting to Identify Suspect Who Indecently Exposed Himself to Two Ladies at Wal-Mart (Amended)
DATE: April 6, 2016
CASE #: 16-006887
This news release has been amended with an additional better quality close-up photo of the suspect.

As previously released:

On April 3, 2016 at approximately 2:00 PM, a white male suspect obscenely exposed himself to two ladies in the parking lot of Wal-Mart, located at 2500 West Stone Drive in Kingsport. The victims were sitting in their car when the suspect pulled into a parking space beside them. He was driving a bronze colored Honda CRV compact sport utility vehicle.

He stared at them, exited his car, and waved as he approached their vehicle. As the victims glanced back in the direction of the man, they noticed that he had his genitalia out of his pants and was masturbating. When the suspect realized that the victims had noticed his vulgar actions, he lewdly shook his genitalia at them, re-entered his vehicle, and fled the scene.

The victims wisely used a cell phone to photograph the suspect after he got back in his vehicle, and those photos have been included in this release. Anyone who recognizes him is asked to contact Detectives in the K.P.D. Criminal Investigation Division at 423-229-9429 or call Kingsport Central Dispatch at 423-246-9111.

Alternatively, if an individual who is able to supply information related to this or any other case wishes not to be identified, tips can be submitted anonymously via online “Citizen Feedback” forms available at the following link:
