Mount Vernon District Station – We are asking for the public’s help in identifying a man who showed a sexually explicit video to a teenager yesterday. Officers were called to the Goodwill at 6220 Richmond Highway around 5:45 in the evening for a report of a man who had been following a teen throughout the store. The man, who only spoke in Spanish, asked for help in deleting something from his phone and showed the teen a sexually explicit video. Surveillance video confirmed the suspect followed the teen throughout the store before approaching her. The suspect is described as a Hispanic man, about 5’7”, thin build with the sides of his head shaved and short hair on top, wearing a dark blue jacket with a white T-shirt underneath.
