Two women report being flashed by man while walking

Posted: Updated:

DALTON, WHITFIELD COUNTY, GA (WRCB) -- Two women reported that they were flashed by a white male as they walked alongside Tibbs Road, around 11:00 am Friday. 

The incident happened along Tibbs Road between the interstate bridge and the Church of Christ.

A white male approached the victims from the tree line and got their attention and pulled down his pants, exposing his genitals.  As the women ran away, they reported that he ran after them for a very short distance. 

Shortly after, a Dalton Police officer turned onto Tibbs Road and possibly spooked the suspect.  The victims flagged the officer down and reported the incident, but a search of the area didn't turn up any suspect.

The victims described the suspect as being a white male, approximately 6 feet tall with a slender build, short dark hair and dark facial hair.  The suspect appeared to be in his late 20's or early 30's. He wore dark brown shorts and a white t-shirt. 

This is the only report of this type that the DPD has received, and investigators don't have any indication that this will happen again.  However, the DPD does advise people to use caution, especially in the area where this incident occurred.  Women who plan to go walking or jogging are advised to try to go out in pairs or groups, and to avoid being out alone after dark.  If possible, it's a good idea to have a cell phone with you as you walk or run. 

If anyone has any information on the suspect in this case, or has experienced a similar incident, please contact Detective Greg Bates at 706-278-9085, extension 137.
