NEWPORT NEWS-Two cases of indecent exposure and Newport News Police believe the same man is responsible.

Both incidents happened Wednesday morning - less than four miles apart. The first report came in around 6:20 a.m. A woman walking to work said she saw a man with no pants pleasuring himself in the parking lot at Freedom Way and Jefferson Avenue.

40 minutes later, a woman waiting in her car outside a coffee shop in the 700 block of J. Clyde Morris Boulevard saw a man leaning against the building masturbating.

The suspect is white and described as having an average build and was wearing a dark blue/black jacket. The witnesses in the first incident said he's about 5'7' tall and had on a blue-and-white hat. In the first case, the man was carrying a backpack.

Anyone with information that can help police should call Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.
