CHANDLER, Ariz. (AP) - Police in Chandler are warning women and asking for the public's help identifying a man who has exposed himself at least a dozen times on popular trail.

Sgt. Joe Favazzo says the man began exposing himself to women jogging, walking and biking along the Sun Circle Trail between Dobson Road and Arizona Avenue in April. The man then disappears into nearby neighborhoods.

Favazzo said Thursday some victims didn't immediately report the incidents to police, but he says that's important to do if officers are to catch the man.

The flasher is described as a white man between 30 and 50 years old, balding or with short blonde hair and a pot belly. He's possibly driving a dark colored sport utility vehicle.

Anyone with information should call Chandler police.
