SARASOTA, Fla. - The Sarasota Police Department is investigating an indecent exposure in the presence of two juvenile girls in the game room of a Lido Key resort.
According to police, around 4:15pm Sunday, a woman at the Limetree Beach Resort on Benjamin Franklin Drive on Lido Key informed management of the incident.
The woman told officers that she was the grandmother of two juvenile girls who said they were playing ping pong in the game room when a man came near them while he was masturbating and made lewd comments to them.
The victims described him as a white male in his late 20’s to early 30’s, 5’9”, thin, with facial hair. He was wearing a black baseball cap, no shirt, and black/blue/white flowery swim trunks.
About an hour and a half later, police received another call from the hotel stating the several people were chasing the suspect east towards Ted Sperling Park. A perimeter was set up but could not locate the suspect.
This time the suspect was seen wearing black swim trunks or long pants and carrying a dirty white shirt and carrying his flip flops.
