PROVO, Utah — Police in Provo are asking for help identifying a suspect who allegedly exposed himself to four women and physically assaulted two of them in the space of about a week.

Police posted a composite sketch of the suspect on social media along with details about the four alleged incidents.

The first incident occurred October 27 at 7 a.m. near 455 North Belmont.

The other three incidents occurred November 2.

The second incident occurred at 900 South State Street around 8 p.m. The third incident occurred at 450 East and 600 North around 9 p.m. The fourth incident was at 900 North and 900 East at 10 p.m.

Police state the suspect groped two of the women and exposed himself in all four incidents. Three of the four women were jogging when they encountered the man.

The man is described as a white male who stands between 5’8″ and 6’0″ with a medium build. He has red or brown facial hair described as “scruffy.”

In each case he was wearing a light, cream-colored hoodie with the hood up, light jeans and tennis shoes.

Anyone who recognizes the man or who may have witnessed anything related to the assaults are asked to call Provo PD at 801-852-6210.

While the case is at least the second in recent weeks to involve assaults on women who were jogging, police said they do not believe case is related to one reported earlier in October.
