Deputies searching for suspect who exposed himself to 12-year-old juvenile

Osceola County deputies are searching for a suspect who exposed himself to a 12-year-old juvenile.

According to an Osceola County Sheriff’s Office report, on Aug. 18, at about 1 p.m., the female victim was standing outside of the Aldi’s Grocery Store, 1040 Buenaventura Blvd., in Kissimmee, when the suspect drove up in a silver four-door sedan (possibly 2002-10), with no tinted windows.

The suspect made eye contact with the victim as he exposed himself from the waist down, and proceeded to touch himself in front of the girl, the report stated. The victim immediately looked away, and the suspect then left the area in an unknown direction. The suspect was described as a Hispanic male, between 20 and 30 years old, with short dark hair, no facial hair, dark eyes and wearing diamond stud earrings in both ears.

“The Osceola County Sheriff's Office is dedicated to serving our community and protecting our children from harm,” said Maj. Jacob Ruiz in a press release.

Anyone with information related to the case or any other similar incidents, is asked to contact the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office at 407-348-2222 or Crimeline at 1-800-423-8477, where information leading to a felony arrest may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
