Serial flasher strikes again? Canoeists report man wearing hat - but not clothes - at Bandemer Park
Two women canoeing on the Huron River in Bandemer Park endured an unwelcome sight on Wednesday when a senior man wearing nothing but a hat revealed himself, police said.
Ann Arbor police Sgt. Earl Fox said the indecent exposure was reported at 2:30 p.m. Wednesday near the park located on North Main Street.
The man is believed to be the same person who exposed himself to three women in Gallup Park and Furstenberg Nature Area in incidents reported late last month, Fox said.
“The investigation is continuing and we don’t know for sure if it is him,” Fox said. “The assumption can be made, but we’re not sure.”
Ann Arbor police Lt. Renee Bush said in May that police were investigating whether the elderly man who danced in the nude in front of two women canoeing in Furstenberg Nature Area and flashed a runner in Gallup Park was the same man suspected of revealing himself in the same area during 2011.
The man has been described as white, between 60 and 80 years old, with gray hair, according to police.
Ann Arbor schools officials sent out an alert to parents last fall after a man was spotted repeatedly revealing himself on Fuller Road near Huron High School. Police said the same man was a suspect in at least five cases, when runners and drivers in the area reported seeing way too much of the man.
Anyone with information of the incident is encouraged to call the Ann Arbor police anonymous tip line at 734-794-6939.
