Melbourne Police search for sexual battery suspect

The Melbourne Police Department is searching for a man who is suspected of exposing himself in a lewd manner, as well as a sexual battery.

Officers said there have been three incidents of exposure and one incident of sexual battery.   All occurred between August 31 and September 19, in the area of Babcock Street north of Nasa Blvd., in and around the Indian River Bluffs neighborhood.  However, it remains unclear if all the incidents are connected to one suspect. 

Police on Monday released a sketch of a suspect, based on an indecent exposure incident on Sept. 15.

Any witnesses to these cases or any related and yet unreported incidents are asked to contact the Criminal Investigations Division of the Melbourne Police Department at (321) 608-8477.
