PEMBROKE PINES, FLA. (WSVN) - A South Florida man has reportedly exposed himself to three women inside a Pembroke Pines gated community.
Pembroke Pines Police said a woman in The Avant community saw an unknown man in a parking lot outside one of the residential buildings near Southwest 119th Avenue and Southwest 15th Street, around 11 p.m., Wednesday.
Officials said the woman saw the man vigorously rubbing his genitals through his pants.
The woman then yelled for help as the suspect drew nearer, and the suspect fled deeper into the community without touching the woman or saying a word, police said.
“That’s disgusting, man. That’s disgusting,” one resident said.
“That’s unacceptable,” said another resident.
A few minutes later, the man followed two more women a block away at Southwest 14th Street. The two women, like the previous victim, were outside a residential building at the community’s parking lot, according to police.
However, officials said, the suspect this time was masturbating his exposed penis while looking at the two women.
The two women went toward the nearest building, and the man fled back into The Avant community.
Similar to the previous incident, the man did not say anything to the victims and did not make physical contact with them.
“I mean, we have security here, so I don’t know why they wouldn’t catch him,” a resident said.
The subject is described as a white, possibly Hispanic, male in his 30s, standing at 5 feet 8 inches to 5 feet 10 inches tall, with a slim build.
The man was said to be wearing a long-sleeved sweater and pants. The suspect also had a dark shirt wrapped around his head, which concealed everything but his eyes.
Police are asking all residents in The Avant and Harbor Cove communities to use caution during the evening and nighttime hours, and to be aware of any suspicious persons loitering in community parking lots or near buildings.
One resident said, “I’ll definitely be on the lookout for that.”
“It’s, you know, kind of scary,” said a female resident.
Officials believe the incidents are related to previous cases within The Avant and Harbour Cove communities in 2017 and 2018.
