The Dalton Police Department is asking for the public’s help with identifying a man who exposed himself to a female shopper at the Wal-Mart on Shugart Road. Investigators have a picture of the man entering the store from surveillance video, and that image is included below.
The incident happened January 19th at approximately 5:40 pm. The female shopper was in the area of the shoe department when the suspect got her attention and exposed himself to her. The victim told investigators that she was shocked and didn’t know how to react. The suspect then walked away and met back up with the female with whom he came into the store, and the pair left the store after making a purchase. The pair then left in a light-colored Ford Focus.
The suspect is a white male with dark hair and a possible slight goatee. He wore plaid shorts, a gray Georgia Bulldogs T-Shirt, red Georgia Bulldogs hat and sandals. The woman who came into the store with the suspect wore a blue shirt and blue jeans. Anyone who knows the identity of the suspect is asked to contact Detective John Helton at 706-278-9085, extension 143.
