State Police on Tuesday released a photo of the vehicle driven by the man who exposed himself to three women who were running near Bethpage State Parkway Saturday morning.

Frank Bandiero, a spokesman for the State Police, said Monday that the man was spotted by the women between 9:30 and 10 a.m. while they were running as a group. He said they saw the man nearby standing in the woods with no clothes on below the waist.

“There’s a bike path that runs along the east side of Bethpage Parkway — it goes north and south, and Boundary Avenue is in the middle,” Bandiero said. “The women were on or near the bike path when they saw him. He was somewhere in the area between the Southern State Parkway and Hempstead Turnpike.”

Bandiero said that though the women all knew each other, and went running as a group, because they each ran past the area at different points, each woman saw him at a different time, but all saw him between 9:30 and 10 a.m.

On Tuesday, State Police released a photo of the vehicle along with a description of the man. The suspect was described as about 6 feet tall with a slender build, short dark hair and no facial hair; he was wearing a black hooded shirt, with white sneakers.

Anyone with information is asked to call State Police at 631-756-3300.
