This story has been updated to include more photos of the police suspect.

Howard County Police have released additional photos of a man reportedly seen exposing himself to a group of young girls inside the Mall in Columbia on Jan. 13. 

On Jan. 26, police released five additional photos to accompany the original photo, which was released on Jan. 22.  

According to police, a witness observed the man following the group of girls, who were unaware they were being followed, and described the man as "acting in a suspicious manner."

She told police that the man was walking with a coat over his arm, hanging in front of his pants. When the man walked by the woman, she said she saw his genitals were exposed and that he was touching himself, according to police.

Police said a second witness also observed the man and reported it to a mall security guard. 

When officers arrived to the Mall, there was no sign of the man, police said. 

The suspect is described as a white male in his 50s, approximately 5’9”-6’ tall, 250 lbs., with dark brown hair with some gray, thinning on top and parted on the side. He is described as having thick eyebrows, square glasses and protruding teeth. The suspect had a short blue corduroy jacket with a wool collar, a black t-shirt with an unknown design on the front, gold or tan corduroy pants and a black belt.
