— Apex police have received dozens of calls since releasing a sketch of a man accused of sexually assaulting and exposing himself to women at Apex Community Park.

Police said Thursday that they are following up on every tip, and that many callers report noticing a person jogging in jeans, which they found odd.

A woman told police that a man groped her on a walking trail at the park Tuesday afternoon. Another woman reported that a man exposed himself to her and then ran away, officers said.

The suspect is a white man in his mid- to late 20s, stands 5 feet 11 inches tall with a slim build, has reddish-brown hair.

Anyone with information should contact the Apex Police Department at 919-362-8661.

    GoGreen, many people who cry constantly about search and seizure laws are doing so because they have something to hide. I'm not saying you do. But I KNOW I have NOTHING to hide. I don't have unregistered firearms, illegal drugs, stolen items, or underage porn in my home. If you live a legal life, rarely is there anything to fear. Yes, there are exceptions with a bad cop. But, unlike many people seem to believe, a bad cop is the exception and not the rule. Living a clean life is being free from worry. Its very peaceful. Everyone should try it.

    green, come on now, you called me a tard. lol

    i may be a little slow, i admit it. nope, i'm not giving up my rights. there's too many dirty cops out there to do that.
    there's good cops too. i guess there are good and bad in every profession. and the feds, geez, everybody knows how ruthless they are. believe me, theres plenty of folks on the far right who hate the feds as much as the folks on the far left.

    and yes, i believe that you have your first amendment right to speak how you feel. even if it's not the popular opinion.
    thats what makes this country great. we can agree to disagree. i may not like what you say, but, i will surely defend your right to say it. too many on the far right and far left have done plenty to attempt to erode free speech.
    from burning books by folks on the right, to liberal universitites laying down strict codes of speech.

    You never responded panthers. Are you first in line to forfeit your civil liberties? Don't duck and dodge the question by throwing out "2nd Amendment" this and ACLU that. Can the cops come in to YOUR home whenever THEY want to make sure all your firearms are legal? I'm just askin'.

    It is funny that 'tards like you throw out 2nd amendment carp all the while bashing the ACLU. The sole goal of the ACLU is to protect the Constitution. You know, the "whole" thing, not just the parts you like.

    jogger, i have spent considerable time around inmates who have done such things as rape and murder elderly women, beat small children until the point of being comatose, etc. so please forgive me if i dont have any sympathy for them. i so choose to have sympathy for the victims of such heinous acts. i wont be at the next picket for inmate's rights. i'll leave protecting inmate rights to the aclu and other such groups.
    we surely need more people looking after the rights of law abiding, tax paying citizens, and less people looking out for the rights of those who kill college girls and the like.

    LOL @ panthers254!! Hitting the nail on the head.

  • panthers254 Apr 23, 2009

    i know all about the second amendment too - you know - the ones liberals like to pretend doesnt exist. i'm armed, just in case someone attempts to enter my house and harm my family.
    this is my RIGHT, correct. since we are talking about the bill of rights. what are you gonna do..... run, scream and call the cops and wait thirty minutes for them to get there.

  • panthers254 Apr 23, 2009

    as far as rights go..... i'm all for free speech..... not the liberals version - free speech as long as it doesnt hurt someones feelings. lol

    Here is a tip. Allow people to exercise their God given Second Amendment right to defend their lives with their own firearms. How about that tip?

  • GoGreen Apr 23, 2009

    And it's all the liberal lawyers fault right?

    I have an idea. Why don't all of you conservative law and order types give up all your civil liberties first. You know, due process, probable cause, Miranda, etc. The rest of us will follow, I promise.

    Go on, I'm right behind ya'.
