ARAPHOE COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4) – A man flashing women on the High Line Canal Trail has Arapahoe County deputies on high alert.

Investigators believe the same man exposed himself to two women within minutes of each other around 6 p.m. Sunday night. They say it happened near East Iliff Avenue on the trail.

He’s described as a white male, 18 to 20 years old, between 5-foot-7 and 5-foot-8, 130 pounds with brown hair. He was last seen wearing a dark blue or black sweatshirt and either sweats or blue jeans.

It is not known at this time if this is the same suspect from the assault that occurred on Monday, March 27, however, the descriptions are similar.

Robin Salazar uses the trail daily and says she faced a similar situation along the same stretch of the trail last year.

“It seemed like a creeper walking along,” Salazar said. “He would wait until I would get ahead of him, and if I would hustle up, he would get closer.”

Salazar got away and warned other women in her path.

“I told them and we all walked back together,” said Salazar.

As deputies continue to search for a suspect, Salazar says there are ways to stay safe.

“(Use the) buddy system and let someone know where you’re going to be, and what time you’re expected,” Salazar said.
