SANDY, Utah – Sandy police are looking for a man suspected of lewd behavior at the South Town Mall.

The boy said a man approached him, pulled down his pants and exposed himself.

While his pants were down, the man asked the boy to “come closer.”

Instead the boy ran out of the bathroom, found his mother and pointed out the suspect to her.

The mother took a quick photo of the man with her phone.

At that point, he knocked the phone out of her hand and pushed her to the ground.

The man then took off on foot and asked to be taken to the nearby Trax station.

He was last seen getting into a late model black Ford Mustang.

The suspect is described as five-feet-seven inches to five-feet-ten inches tall, in his early to mid twenties, with dark colored hair.
