OVERLAND PARK, Kan. -- Over the weekend, Overland Park Police took five reports in less than 24-hours from women who reported a nude male approached them in local parking lots. Now police are hoping to find the man before he frightens or threatens anymore women.

The man is described as a white male, in his 50’s, having an “athletic build”, with thinning gray hair and wire rimmed glasses. He was seen driving a red or maroon Jeep, with no tags displayed.


All reports were received in the areas of 119th and Blue Valley Parkway and 135th and Metcalf, on Sunday, however two other women also report an encounter with a similar man in the stairwell of a parking garage on the Plaza on Sunday. The 26-year-old woman and her mother were leaving the Plaza Art Fair when the naked man approached them as they were walking to their car.

“It seemed a little premeditated to me, to look around the corner, see who's coming up, you know it's two girls, and they don't have a guy with them” Alyssa Blake told FOX 4.

“There was a man in the corner, completely naked from head to toe, just standing there, just looking at us,” Alyssa recalled. “He didn't say anything, he didn't have any expression, it was just a blank look. Just staring at us completely naked, started to walk toward us, and I just turned to my mom, and told her to run.”

Alyssa and Carolyn immediately ran down the stairs. They say the man hopped in a red jeep and left, almost hitting someone as he drove away.

Alyssa said it all happened so fast, she's not sure what the man's intentions were.
Police said they requested the stairwell camera surveillance video from Plaza Security.

Overland Park Police ask anyone with information about the man to call 913-895-6300.
