Suwanee Police have arrested a man who officers said exposed himself to women at least six different times. 

Police said the man is reported to have been exposing himself in and outside of his car in the areas of Moore Road/Landsdowne subdivision, Peachtree Industrial Blvd/Forest Plantation subdivision and Town Center Park, an area frequented by children.

According to investigations, the suspect was arrested on Monday after someone reported a suspicious vehicle that matched the description of the car he had been seen in. 

“We were concerned that he may expose himself to a child,” said Captain Cass Mooney with the Suwanee Police Department.  “All of these offenses have happened between 7 o’clock in the morning and 7 o’clock at night, so these aren't in the middle of the night, dark alley things, he is in broad daylight,” said Captain Mooney.

Last week, Kate Langman said she was walking on Moore Road with two 100-pound dogs when she noticed a man leaning up against a fence, exposing himself.

“He said something to the effect of 'have you ever seen something like this' and kind of came on to me, 'would you like to' and it was a proposition and it was very aggressive,” said Langman.

Langman said she knew reacting would only entice him so she tried to ignore him, but then he started following her.

“At that point I did break into a run and kind of felt that the situation escalated,” said Langman.

Police urge people out walking or jogging to carry their cell phones and snap any pictures or videos that may help them with this case.

“Had they had their phone with them immediately there is a possibility with our quick response time we could have made it to the area before he got away,” said Captain Mooney.

Police want to raise awareness in the community and so does Langman who has been very vocal on social media hoping this does not happen to anyone else.

“I can’t experience something like this and be embarrassed about it and be afraid to say something,” said Langman.  “I need to tell as many people as possible.”

Suwanee Police haven't revealed the suspect's identity at this time.
