Police are still trying to find the naked man who has been exposing himself to walkers and joggers in the Shandon and Heathwood neighborhoods.

Residents say he is a white male that looks around 40 years old. He has been seen behind the bushes during the morning hours. Two women say they saw the man fondling himself as they passed him.

"The worst time of day is when you think it wouldn't be, it's at like ten o'clock when people are at work," said one resident who chose to remain unidentified.

The Columbia Police Department say this is not a laughing matter.

"This behavior can escalate so I would take it seriously I would get the license tag and get off the street as quickly as I could and call the police," said crime prevention officer Scott Stover. 

If you see the man it's important to:

  • Call the police
  • Give your location
  • Stay Calm
  • Be specific
  • Tell police where the activity took place and what type of activity is going on
  • Mention if anyone is hurt

Crimes like these can be seen and reported at Columbia Crime.

If you have any information on this man please call Crime Stoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
