Police: Naked man who chased teen girls linked to earlier lewdness incident
Police believe a naked man who chased two girls in Evesham Township last week is the same person who exposed himself to a woman in neighboring Medford earlier in December.
Medford Township Police Department said the December 21 incident was not reported until December 31 at 1:46 p.m., a day after two Evesham girls were reportedly chased by a 'chubby' naked man.
In both instances the man was reportedly driving around naked in a Jeep SUV with a white decal on the window.
In the Medford incident, a woman reported to police that while walking on Huntington Circle Drive around 2 p.m. on December 21 she observed a naked man exit an older model Jeep Patriot. He was only wearing tennis shoes, police said.
The man is described as white, heavy set with brown hair and "an excessive amount of body hair," according to police. The man reportedly exited the vehicle, opened the rear hatch and then reentered the vehicle and drove away, police said. He did not talk to the female.
In Evesham Township, two teenage girls were walking along Westerly Drive to the basketball courts when a black "Cherokee style" Jeep drove past them, Evesham Township Police have said. The 15- and 14-year-old girls noticed that the driver was shirtless, police said.
A few minutes later the Jeep returned, but this time the driver exited the vehicle and ran toward the girls, police said. The girls fled to one of their homes. The man did not speak to them and got back into his vehicle driving towards Ravens Row, police said.
They described him as white, clean-shaven with a faded haircut, in his 30s to 40s and “chubby.”
