DOYLESTOWN, Pa. (CBS) – Police in Doylestown are warning women to be on the lookout. This past weekend a man approached two women, struck up a casual conversation, and then pulled down their tops before running away.
“That makes me want to walk around like this, so no one pulls my dress down,” said Doylestown resident Meegan Snyder.
“In Doylestown this happened?” said 21-year-old Rebecca Savana. “Wow, I live here, and I didn’t even hear about that.”

Police don’t think the suspect is the elusive “Naked Zorro” from six years ago who exposed himself to several women in Doylestown and was never caught. Authorities think this man is someone new.
“This is certainly unusual,” said Lt. Patrick Penecale, with the Doylestown Police Department.
Lt. Penecale says that last Saturday, the suspect approached a woman in her 20s near the 600 block of North Main Street around 1 a.m. The suspect started a conversation, then ended it by pulling down the woman’s dress.
“At some point, he gets close enough where he can get hands on clothing and then pulls the clothing down,” said Lt. Patrick Penecale.
Minutes after the first incident, police say the same man headed to East Oakland Avenue near South Main Street, approached another woman in her 20s, and pulled down her blouse and bra. That woman was with her boyfriend at the time.
Even though there are surveillance cameras throughout Doylestown, police say they don’t have any video of the suspect. They do have a vague description of him as a white male with short dark hair, who is approximately 5’10 to 6ft tall and has a medium build. The suspect appears to be in his 20s.
If you have any information, police ask that you give them a call at 215-345-4143.
