This guy gave me the extreme creeps today while walking my dog.
I was driving on a well-traveled road in the woods to walk my dog. I'm always armed with my M&Pc while walking my dog in the woods. I drove passed the public boat landing that also has a trail that I did not intend to go. Standing on the road outside the boat landing trail was a guy standing on the side of the road urinating. I drove passed him and thought that was very strange because he could have walked a few steps into the woods and not been seen. I drove .5 miles up the road to my trail.
My trail turned about to be closed with a gate preventing entry to it. So, I headed back to the boat landing area where there is another trail next to the river.
I parked, got my dog and headed into the woods. That guy was in the parking lot and staring at me and my dog, I thought nothing of it because I have a cute 4 month old boxer.
I felt he was following me into the woods, so I speed up to get deeper into the woods. I'm 200 yds into the woods and I stop because I think this guy is following me. I start to wait on him; he catches up and starts talking to me- cute dog etc. In the middle of the conversation he begins to rub himself in an inappropriate manner. Now he is giving me the major creeps and I become nervous.
Then he says he wishes there were restrooms out here, and takes a step toward the river and begins urinating right in front of me. I say have a nice day and start walking fast FURTHER into the woods. I put about 150 yds distance in between us and post up to see if he is follow us.
Sure enough he is. He approaches me while reaching in and out of his pockets; at this point I'm full on freaked out. We start talking again and he continues to rub himself inappropriately. I have my dogs leash in my left hand and my m&p in my right hip. He gets within a foot from me with both hands in his pockets and asks me if I have a light.
I said no, and I'm pretty sure he can tell that he is making me uncomfortable..
Pretty much I just get by him and say later and head back to my car.
I called the non-emergency PD number and reported the indecent exposure and told them exactly what happened. They asked me to speak to an officer and file charges for exposure. I said no, I just want to put it on record that there is a very strange man (around 50) exposing himself on the public boat landing trail.
They sent an officer to the scene and I donít know what happened after that.
Point of story is that I donít know if I could have drawn in time if he would have come at me with a knife, and also I shouldn't have gone down that trail in the first place when I saw him urinating on the road, and definitely shouldn't have gone further into the woods.
