The Cobb County Police Department is asking the public to help them find the half-naked man who charged two women last Tuesday after they saw him masturbating at Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park.
Similar incidents may have occurred prior to this one, and a sketch artist from the Georgia Bureau of Investigations met with the latest victims today to draw a composite of the suspect, who knocked one of the women to the ground.
According to Officer Mike Bowman, the women were walking in the park around 3:15 p.m. April 23 when they saw a 230-pound white or light skinned Hispanic man standing in the wood line. He was naked from the waist down.
After knocking one of the women to the ground near 750 Cheatham Hill Rd., the suspect fled on foot to a faded red mid-1990s Ford Dually pickup truck. He drove westbound on Dallas Highway toward Paulding County, Bowman said. He was wearing a light blue short sleeve T-shirt with unknown writing on it and a grey cargo shorts.
Wanted on charges of public indecency and simple battery, the suspect is described as a 6-foot-2 or 6-foot-3 man in his late 20s or early 30s with possibly hazel eyes. He has a goatee with stubble. His hair is shaggy, curly and either dark brown or black.
Anyone with information that may assist investigators is asked to call 770-499-3945.
