Public tips needed to aid in finding 'serial flasher'

Multiple indecent-exposure incidents reported in Boring, Eagle Creek


Clackamas County sheriff's detectives are searching for an alleged "serial flasher" who has been seen multiple times around the area.

Tips are being sought from the public in this string of indecent-exposure incidents reported around Boring and Eagle Creek.

According to the sheriff's office, as of Wednesday, Dec. 10, there have been four reported incidents following a similar pattern, occurring between the week before Thanksgiving and Tuesday, Dec. 9.

In each incident, a white man in a black pickup, described possibly as a Ford Ranger, reportedly accosted women walking on the roadway or working in their yards. The man allegedly got out of his pickup naked and began masturbating.

Each time, the suspect left before the victim could confront him.

Karla Farr, who lives on the border of Boring and Damascus, had a run in with the man on the morning of Tuesday, Dec. 9.

She said that she was walking in the block between Hoffmeister Road and Highway 212, as she does a couple times a week, when she noticed a car with its headlights on in driveway up ahead.

"He got out and had absolutely nothing on with his hat," Farr said. "I was just so shocked."

Once she got over the shock of what was happening, she pulled out her cell phone to get a photo of his truck.

"By the time I got my phone out he had jumped back in and took off," she said.

However, Farr was able to get a blurry photo of the truck driving away.

From that, detectives were able to get out a good description of the man's vehicle.

Farr said she wasn't sure if hearing the suspect had done this multiple times was comforting or not.

"I was glad [the detective] said the picture had helped," Farr said. "I'm hoping that will all of us reporting that they will be able to catch him."

Detectives from the sheriff’s office are asking for the public’s help in tracking down the suspect.

The suspect is described as a white man in his early 20s, with a thin, muscular build, short brown hair, a light complexion and sharp features. He was seen wearing a camouflage baseball cap, similar to an Army hat.

His vehicle is a small black pickup with an extra cab and a small, round, white sticker in the lower left corner of the pickup’s rear window.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office confidential Tip Line at 503-723-4949 or at web3.clackamas.us/contact/tip.jsp. Those with tips should reference CCSO cases No. 14-33513 and No. 14-32273.
