EAST GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) —  East Grand Rapids public safety officers are looking for a suspicious man seen on the Reeds Lake Trail wearing nothing but Speedo-type underwear.

Officers say they’ve taken three similar reports about a partially nude man in that area, either dancing or making lewd gestures. The incidents happened around 6:57 p.m. Monday, 12:40 p.m. Friday, Oct. 19 and 1:14 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 18.

In the Friday incident, a witness said they spotted the man wearing only gray Speedo-type underwear in the area of Pioneer Club Road SE and Reeds Lake Boulevard. Police determined the suspect made several rude gestures to women as he ran down the trail and exited through the woods next to the trail.

In all of the cases, officers say the man never exposed himself or assaulted any of the people who reported him to authorities.

The suspect is described as white man in his 30s who is between 5-foot-10 and 6 feet tall with dark hair. There are reports he drives a gray crossover vehicle. If you encounter him, call 911 immediately.

Anyone with information in this case is asked to call East Grand Rapids Public Safety at 616.949.7010 or Silent Observer at 616.774.2345.

***EDITOR’S NOTE: An earlier version of this story stated the suspect was between 5-foot-1 and 6 feet tall, based on initial information released by investigators, who have since revised those numbers.***
