Over the past several days since we first released this information and the photograph of the suspect on the trails, we have been overwhelmed with assistance from our community with tips and information regarding the identity of this suspect. Through those tips and information, our Detectives and Community Service Officers identified the suspect and have arrested him. The investigation is still ongoing and at this time the only charges against the suspect are currently misdemeanor violations. As we continue to conduct our investigation there is the possibility of additional felony charges that could become a part of this case but until that time we will not be providing any personal information about the suspect.
We want to thank our community for their support and assistant with this case, we could not have identified this suspect with their help or without the support of Yavapai Silent Witness.
Indecent Exposure Suspect Wanted
The Prescott Police Department has actively been investigating approximately seven different indecent exposure and public sexual indecency cases within the last six months along with the Willow Lake Trail system (Willow Lake/Willow Creek Road). One of the reported incidents involved a minor child who witnessed an incident that rises to the level of felony charges.
A task force of Detectives and Community Services Officers from the Prescott Police Department have conducted extensive follow-up and we have identified a potential person of interest in this case based on investigative work on the trails where this suspect has been observed.
On August 20, 2021, a subject engaged in the same behavior as earlier reported and fled on foot from the trail system near Willow Lake Road. Surveillance footage captured an image of the suspect on the trail system and we need the public’s assistance in identifying the person in the picture below. The male in the photographs matches the description provided by the victims in the prior incidents. He has been described as a white male, 5’-08” to 5’10”, in his mid-30’s, average build, short brown hair, and possibly a short beard.
We are asking for help from our community to identify this subject so that we can stop him from victimizing someone else. If you recognize the subject in the photographs we ask that you please contact Detective Jeremy Brazell at (928) 777-1988, Dispatch at (928) 445-3131, Yavapai Silent Witness at (800) 932-3232 or go online to http://yavapaisw.com. Yavapai Silent Witness is offering up to $500 for information leading to the arrest of this individual. We don’t need your name but we do need your information.
