ID Sought For
Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers is asking for the public’s help identifying a male who trespassed on a Lehigh Acres home, then exposed himself in a lewd manner.
According to detectives, on March 19, at approximately 5:01 p.m., deputies responded to a private residence located at the 5000 of 26th Street SW in Lehigh Acres. The complainant reported that his neighbor had just observed a black male subject in her yard while she was working in her garden. The black male was described as possibly in his late 20’s – early 30’s and fairly tall. The neighbor stated that she has seen the same subject in her yard over the preceding several months but did not report it because she was afraid of retaliation.
The complainant reviewed exterior recorded video surveillance and confirmed that the subject was there as the neighbor described. Upon reviewing the video, a black male is seen walking around the neighbor’s back yard and the lightly wooded area behind the homes. On several occasions the subject can be seen hiding himself against the corner of her home looking at the neighbor as she is working inside. While the subject stands, he can be seen exposing himself and committing a lewd act upon himself in her presence. At one point, the subject leaves and returns to the corner of the complainants home and again exposes himself and commits another lewd act upon himself.
At one point the subject steps out from the cover of the house and takes several steps towards the neighbor and clears his throat very loudly as if to get her attention. The neighbor looks up and sees him exposing himself and again committing a lewd act upon himself. The neighbor walked into her home and the subject walked away from the house, through the wooded area behind the homes and onto 27th Street SW.
Anyone with information on the identity of this suspect, and his current whereabouts, is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS (8477). All callers will remain anonymous and will be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000.
