The Loudoun County Sheriff's Office is investigating a series of indecent exposure incidents in eastern Loudoun.
In an incident June 3, a naked man wearing a carnival mask knocked on the front door of a house on Bickel Court around 9:30 p.m. and then appeared at the back door of the house, looking through a window. A woman and her daughter who were inside at the time left the house. Officers said no suspect was found.
On the same street about a month earlier, on May 9, a man was reported standing naked in a fenced-in back yard at about 11:20 p.m. The homeowner indicated she heard a noise and saw the man in her yard. Officials said he did not try to enter the home and fled when the woman screamed.
Sheriff's spokesman Kraig Troxell said the cases do not appear to be related to two recent incidents on the Washington & Old Dominion trail near Ashburn.
The first involved a man who approached a woman who was jogging on June 2 near the intersection of the trail and Belmont Ridge Road. Officials said the man asked if he could run with the woman and then made inappropriate comments and gestures. The man was seen near an older-model, green Oldsmobile.
The other incident on the trail involved a man who exposed himself to a female jogger at about 1 p.m. on May 21, near Algonkian Parkway and Whittingham Circle. The man was described as in his 20s, 5-foot-6 and 160 pounds and was wearing a red cap, a red T-shirt and baggy cargo pants.
In addition, the Sheriff's Office is investigating an incident the night of June 5 in which a man made sexual comments to a 12-year-old girl at the Borders Bookstore in Sterling. The man was described as white, in his mid- to late thirties, about 5-foot-6 and 190 pounds. He left the store in a yellow Ford Mustang convertible.
Anyone with information about any of the cases is asked to contact the Sheriff's Criminal Investigations Division at 703-777-0475. Callers wishing to remain anonymous can contact Loudoun County Crime Solvers at 703-777-1919. Information leading to an arrest and indictment could be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000.
