BLOOMINGTON, Ind. –Police are investigating reports of a man watching and following women while masturbating on the north side of Bloomington.

Police say there have been six incidents reported within the past two weeks. The incidents reportedly occurred primarily between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. in the area north of 11th Street, south of 16th Street and west of Dunn Street. Police say they now have increased patrols in those areas.

“We’ve been getting a very similar description in every one of the incidents,” Bloomington Capt. Steve Kellams said.

The suspect has been described as a white male 5’10” to 6’ tall, medium build, with light brown hair. A composite of the possible suspect has been created.

“In some instances he’s run away, in other instances the victims have run away,” Kellams said.

Two of the cases took place at the pool at Brownstone Terrace Apartments on 14th Street. In one case, the victim managed to talk to the suspect, who told her that he lived in the area.

In the latest case, around noon on Monday, a police report indicated that the victim “said he had a crazy look on  his face. She screamed and he was masturbating faster as he was approaching her. She screamed louder and he ran…”

Police recommend that people in the area pay attention to their surroundings and immediately contact Bloomington police by calling 911 or (812) 339-4477 if they notice anything or anyone suspicious. Police have increased patrols in the area.
