Sanford Police looking for man targeting women, making sexual comments

Sanford police say a man was reported to be making inappropriate sexual comments toward females walking in various areas of the city.

SANFORD, Maine — The Sanford Police Department received several calls about a man exhibiting sexually explicit behavior on Sunday.

The man was reported to be making inappropriate sexual comments toward women walking in various areas of the city, according to Sanford Police Detective Everett Allen. The man was later seen at two separate Aroma Joe's locations in the Sanford. 

During the Aroma Joe’s encounters, Allen said, the man was reportedly touching himself sexually and tried to get into the buildings. The man fled before police arrived. Allen said no employees were physically harmed.

The man is described as white, thin build, aged 25-35 years old, with brownish-blonde hair in a ponytail or “man bun.” The man was driving a beat-up, dark-colored Chevrolet truck, with Chevrolet in big letters across the tailgate, and 4X4 on the bed. He was wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt at the time of the incidents.
