SUMMARY OF INCIDENT:
VSP-Derby Troopers are requesting the public's assistance with the following
At approximately 1215 on 04/18/2017, a juvenile female was followed and
approached by a male in the area of the south beach of Lake Willoughby. The
male asked the juvenile a series of questions, and then approached her with his
pants off, exposing himself. The juvenile ran and hid, and the male appeared to
check around the area for a period of time.
The male was described as being as white and in his 30s or 40s, with dark brown
hair, likely no taller than 5'10", and stocky or chubby. He had short
hair and a short, scruffy beard. He was wearing hiking boots and either a
jacket or hooded sweatshirt, dark in color.
The male was operating a dark red, newer model extended cab pickup truck with a
white window sticker on the rear driver's side passenger window depicting a gun
barrel, and something to the effect of, "There's nothing in this truck worth
dying for." The windows may have been tinted.
Derby Troopers and the Orleans County Sheriff's Dept have received several
recent complaints of suspicious or lewd behavior in the area of Willoughby and
southern Westmore. Anyone with information regarding the above individual or
vehicle is asked to contact the VSP-Derby Barracks at (802) 334-8881.
