Police Searching For Man Who Exposed Himself At Spartanburg Trail

Posted: Updated:
SPARTANBURG, S.C. -

Spartanburg Police say a man yelled "hey" to a woman walking the Spartanburg Rail Trail Sunday morning. He then exposed himself to her while standing in the wood line with his pants pulled down.

With families using walking trails throughout the Upstate, 7 On Your Side asked law enforcement what they are doing to keep you safe.

"We have officers that actually work downtown," said Capt. Regina Nowak with Spartanburg Public Safety. "We encourage them to ride the Rail Trail. In the past where there have been incidents they are the first to get out here."

"We have about 16 officers that work in the central business district," said Lt. Jason Rampey with Greenville Police."Those are the same officers that are policing the trail."

Both agencies tell us patrols can increase depending on the day of the week and the weather.

In Spartanburg cameras are also located in parking areas.

In Greenville police use four off-road vehicles and bikes to get to you quickly,anywhere on the Swamp Rabbit Trail.

We checked and this year there have been three crimes reported from the Spartanburg Rail Trail before Sunday's incident. All three were car break-ins.

Last year, Spartanburg Police did responded to one indecent exposure in March. Before that there were no reports of crime since September 2010.

Greenville PD says it has no violent crimes or indecent exposures on the Swamp Rabbit Trail to report in the past year.

Spartanburg Police say the man exposed himself to a walker around 8 a.m. Sunday near South Pine and Forest Avenue.

The walker describes the man as a black male, about 5'10" and 40 to 45 years old.

At the time he was wearing blue jeans, with a blue jean jacket, dark-rimmed glasses and a striped, knitted cap.

Call Crime Stoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC with any information.
