Ocean City Police are asking for the public's help to find a man who exposed himself to two teenage girls in a parking lot Tuesday.

The naked man was standing next to a dumpster at the Whispering Woods Condos at 143rd Street and Tunnel Avenue around 1 a.m., when the 17-year-old and 14-year-old walked by. When they observed the man, he then began masturbating in front of them. The teens ran from the scene and called police.

By the time police arrived, the suspect had fled the scene. OCPD said the suspect is described as a tall, middle-aged white male with short, dark hair and a semi-muscular build.

The police are asking citizens who live in the north end of Ocean City to be on the lookout for the suspect and also to report any suspicious activity. Police suggested walking in pairs and carrying a cell phone to call  the OC Emergency Communications Center at 410-723-6600.

Also, anyone who may have previously had a similar encounter or incident is urged to contact OCPD at
410-723-6604.
