A Warner Robins woman is warning Galleria Mall shoppers to be careful after a man exposed himself to her in the middle of the afternoon.
The woman, who would only identify herself as Jessica, says the incident happened Wednesday around 3:45pm. Jessica says she was leaving Sears Department Store when a car parked so closely to her car she was boxed in.
"I was trying to get into my vehicle and he made some sort of noise, but I really just wanted to get into my car so when I got into my car I kind of glanced over and noticed he had himself fully exposed," says Jessica.
Major Garrett Cooley with the Centerville Police Department says it is very unusual for this type of crime to take place during the day, "This is actually one of the first times I've heard about this in the middle of the afternoon," says Cooley.
According to mall security, an incident like this hasn't happened in close to 4 years. Security has also increased patrol in the last few months to every half hour.
Centerville Police and mall security are actively looking for the suspect's car, which Jessica describes as a late 1980s model burgundy or red sedan.
Maj. Cooley says Centerville Police also plan to patrol the area more than usual.
Jessica says she wants to remind women to be aware of their surroundings. "I don't really want to go shopping by myself. I'm definitely going to watch where I'm parking even though I wasn't parked very far," says Jessica.
The suspect is described as a white male in his early 30s. He also has facial hair. If you have any information call the Centerville Police Department at 953-4222.
