Police seek man exposing himself in hotel lobbies
Township police are investigating multiple instances of a man exposing himself in hotel lobbies.
Within the span of about an hour Tuesday morning, township police were dispatched to two hotels, one on Interstate Boulevard and the other on Canfield-Niles Road, for reports of a man exposing himself in the lobbies.
The first call sent police to the Sleep Inn just before 1 a.m. Tuesday, according to a report.
The report notes that “this is the fourth time we have received a call in reference to a black male exposing himself in the lobby of hotels.”
It details three previous incidents, starting in October.
Then shortly after 2 a.m. Tuesday, police were called to the Fairfield Inn for a similar report. Police believe the same suspect is responsible for both of Tuesday’s incidents, according to the reports.
In both cases, hotel employees reported that they approached a man sitting in the lobby, who told them he was waiting for a friend. Employees at both hotels then observed him performing a sex act on himself, according to the reports.
Police are looking at a person of interest, according to a report.
