A man who allegedly exposed his genitals to a group of children in the Hackettstown Community Pool on July 2 is still on the loose, but police have released a sketch of what the perpetrator could look like along with more details.
Hackettstown Police issued the drawing Tuesday morning, six days after the incident occurred.
On July 2, police were dispatched to the pool for a report of a man who exposed himself to a group of children around 2:30 p.m. When police arrived, the man was gone and was last seen heading toward Warren Street.
New Jersey State Police said the man would expose himself to children swimming under water with goggles on. The man also stated his name was "Billy," police said.
A new description says the man is white, between 35 and 45 years old, between 5’8 and 5’10 in height, between 190 and 210 pounds, has dirty blonde or grey hair with a fair or pale complexion. At the time of the incident, witnesses say the man was wearing glasses, a black braided necklace, a dark blue tank top and blue swimming trunks.
Witnesses also said "Billy" had yellow teeth.
Campers with the Musconetcong Village Community Association, who were swimming at the pool that day, were allegedly followed by the man before he exposed himself, according to parent who spoke with Patch on condition of anonymity.
The parent said a group of children had told the man to leave them alone before he ultimately exposed his genitals to them. At that point the campers told their camp counselors, who reported the incident to the lifeguards on staff.
Hackettstown Community Pool employees would not comment on the matter as it is a police investigation.
The incident is being investigated by the Hackettstown Police Detective Bureau. Anyone with information is being asked to call 908-852-3302.
