For Immediate Release: February 26, 2021
The Alexandria Police Department is investigating several indecent exposure cases in the Del Ray neighborhood.
There have been approximately 10-11 cases of indecent exposure between May 2020 and February 2021. The incidents occurred on different streets including Mount Vernon Avenue and E. Glendale Avenue, and usually in the morning. The suspect’s description has varied from case to case, making it hard to determine the number of suspects involved. In one case, our K-9 unit was able to track the suspect’s scent for a short distance, but then lost it. There have been no injuries reported in any of these incidents.
The Police department encourages anyone who is a victim or witnessed these incidents to call 9-1-1. If you live in the neighborhood, please review your security cameras and call police if there is suspicious activity.
Remember, if you “See Something, Say Something.”
- Call 9-1-1 immediately. Time is valuable. The sooner a victim or witness calls 911, the quicker officers will respond to the scene.
- Encourage victims to speak up and call 9-1-1 to report the incident.
- Share as many details as you can. Clothing, height, weight, hair and eye color. If you see a vehicle, note the make and model, color, license plate, and any distinguishing features (tinted windows, stickers, etc.)
- If it is safe, snap a picture or record video.
- Review your security camera video from about 30 minutes before and after an incident. Call police if you captured anything.
