PRINCETON: Police seek pantless man who exposed himself to woman near Lake Carnegie

By Lea Kahn, Staff Writer
A man who exposed himself to a young woman as she was walking on the towpath along Lake Carnegie shortly before noon Friday is being sought by the Princeton Police Department.
The victim, 19, was sitting on a park bench at 11 a.m. on the towpath on the south side of Lake Carnegie near South Harrison Street when a white male walked up to her from a tall, grassy area, police said.
He stood about 10 feet away from her and was naked from the waist down, exposing his genitals. He stared at her for several seconds before she ran off toward S. Harrison Street. He did not speak to her or touch her, police said. The victim was uninjured.
The suspect is a white man in his 40s, about 6 feet tall with an average build, police said. He was wearing a beige-colored and dirty surgical mask, gray sunglasses, a navy blue hoodie and no pants. He was last seen on the towpath heading north toward Plainsboro Township.
The Princeton University Department of Public Safety and the Princeton Police Department responded immediately and searched the area, but could not find the suspect.
Anyone with information about the incident should contact Det. Ben Gering at 609-921-2100, ext. 1840.
