SUMMARY OF INCIDENT:
VSP-Derby is requesting the public’s assistance in identifying the offender. On 10/20/17, VSP-Derby Trooper took a report that a male had approached a mother and her young child at the Derby Line playground near Main and Elm Streets. The male then made inappropriate comments to the mother and exposed his genitals to her. The mother was able to fend the male off after he attempted to grab her by striking him.
It is believed the suspect has been frequenting the playground and area of the school recently.
The suspect is described as a white male approximately 60 years of age, approximately 5’9” and slightly chubby, with gray hair, possibly brown eyes, an older, faded black ink tattoo on his forearm (Possibly a dog’s head), and was at the time wearing jeans and a black T-shirt. The male has been seen operating an older-model black Chevy Blazer with Vermont plates and a rust spot on the front passenger door and on the date of the incident was seen leaving to the west on Elm St. The male is also believed to have a blackened or injured right eye resulting from the encounter.
Anyone with information which may assist in identifying the suspect is strongly encouraged to contact VSP-Derby at (802) 334-8881, Attn. Trooper Lynch. Anonymous tips are encouraged as well.
