Motorcycle Masturbator Sought in String of Incidents Involving Women in R, P and W Sections

A man who rides around Palm Coast’s R, W and P sections on a small motorcycle is connected to four similar incidents in which the man scopes out a woman walking her dog or sitting in her garage, pulls up next to her, takes out his penis and starts masturbating.

Four such incidents have been reported since July 27. In each case, the assailant is black, young (in his early 20s), not very tall. In one case he’s described as fit. He targets middle-age women, though in one case one of the reporting women was 88. He seems confident enough to approach women in close proximity, but flees the moment the women either call out or reach for their phone to call authorities.

The pattern appears to have started on July 27 when a 52-year-old woman walking her dog in the area of Rae Drive at 9:09 p.m. saw a man on a motorcycle (with no headlights) pass her, then turn around at Raintree Circle and stop near her. He then unzipped his pants and started masturbating while asking her if she wanted to make $100. The woman ran to her nearby house and called 911.

She described the man as around 20 but she didn’t get a good look at his face: he was wearing a dark motorcycle helmet that covered all his face but his eyes. He wore jeans. She described the motorcycle as a small Suzuki-like black cruiser.

On Aug. 11 at 5:20 p.m., a similar incident took place on Winchester Drive, again with the man on the motorcycle approaching a woman as she was on the side of the road, walking her dog. The woman in this case is 88. The man drove by on the motorcycle, passed her, turned around, then said something to her—she didn’t understand what—and proceeded to rub himself (the incident report describes it as “in a sensual manner”) as he looked right at the woman. He then rode off toward Westhampton Drive.

Four days later—on Aug. 15—another woman (the only victim described as Hispanic) reported a similar incident, minus a motorcycle. The 55-year-old woman was sitting in her garage on Pinelynn Lane close to 10 p.m. when the man walked around the side of the house and exposed himself to her, his hand holding his penis. He was close enough to be between the garage door and the vehicle parked in the driveway. When the woman yelled out for her husband (after asking the man what he was doing), the man fled.

She described him as young, shirtless, wearing blue jeans and orange-framed sunglasses, about 5’1 to 5’3’’, and looking very fit “as he had abs,” according to the incident report.

The next reported incident took place at 4:47 p.m. on Aug. 26, when a 59-year-old woman walking her dog in the area of Pin Oak Drive and Pinto Lane was approached by a man on a motorcycle wearing a gray hoodie tied tightly around his face. He followed her a certain distance, then cornered her and said, “oh you’re so beautiful.” Before long he’d pulled down his pants, pulled out his penis and started masturbating in front of her.

The woman pulled out her cell phone and called 911. The man got back on his motorcycle (described as an “unknown dirt-bike type vehicle” in the incident report) and fled down Pinto Lane fast. Several deputies responded to the area, but a search proved fruitless.

In that case, the woman described the man as 5’8’’ or 5’9’’.

The sheriff’s office issued the following tips:

Practice good situational awareness: Be aware of who is around you, both walking and anyone parked nearby. Ninety percent of self-defense is awareness; 10 percent is physical.

Scream or yell in a loud voice if someone approaches you in a threatening manner. Screaming “BACK OFF” or “GET BACK” to alert bystanders is the No. 1 thing you can do to get help and maybe even save your life.

Listen to your instincts: If something or someone seems suspicious, turn around, go another way.

If possible, walk before dark. Walk in well-lit areas. Take another person with you if possible.

Provide a good description: Be able to describe a suspect’s clothes, appearance, height, weight, hair and eye color, race, sex and vehicle.

Unless the situation dictates otherwise, do not confront or take matters into your own hands. Be a good witness and call law enforcement immediately.

If you see something suspicious in Flagler County, say something by calling 911 immediately. If you have any information about these crimes or any crimes in Flagler County, call the Sheriff’s Office at (386) 313-4911, or if you want to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers of Northeast Florida at 1-888-277-8477 and be eligible for a reward.

    This place just gets weirder and weirder.

  2. Sw says:

    This place has gone cuckoo YOU CAN’T EVEN MAKE THIS SHIT UP LOL

  3. The Geode says:

    So much for the “good job FCSO” people who thinks these Keystone Cops are the next best thing since Batman. Can’t catch a dude on a motorcycle? One would think that would be easy enough but instead he has free reign to travel the city and “whip it out, willy-nilly”. Speaking of pervs, what’s with the shirtless white guy who roams around talking to himself in the R section, everyday?

  4. Steff says:

    Get the license plate!!!

  5. Geezer says:

    What an ugly image this conjures up.
    It makes you want to blind your mind’s eye.

    I only hope that the cops call HazMat before cuffing him.

  6. Joe A says:

    Sounds like he is one step away from actually raping somebody, hope they catch this pervert quick, also glad that I have moved away from PC, what a shame, it used to be a really nice place!

  7. Veteran says:

    What’s next?

  8. anon2 says:

    @ Geode: According to the article, it’s a dirt bike. Not easy to catch with a patrol car if it goes off-road.

    This is no joking matter. A serial masturbator often becomes a serial rapist. They need to catch this guy quick.

  9. NortonSmitty says:

    I heard of this guy! He smokes a joint and then masturbates! He calls himself Weedwacker. Haaaaa!!!

  10. Lin says:

    This isn’t funny

  11. The Geode says:

    LOL @ NortonSmity – you owe me a coffee. I spit mine out after reading your post…

  12. The Geode says:

    @Anon2 – “She described the motorcycle as a small Suzuki-like black cruiser.” and “A man who rides around Palm Coast’s R, W and P sections on a small motorcycle” doesn’t sound like a dirt bike. Besides, a dirt bike’s noise would be easier to track.

  13. Slkm30 says:

    So glad I moved, I agree with Joe A. That’s a common behavior of future rapiest, he’s scoping out the situation, seeing how far he can go, and next time it could be worse. Catch this guy before bad things happen.

  14. Outsider says:

    Why bother arresting and charging him? He’s already proven he can get himself off.

  15. anon2 says:

    @Geode: I was sure that i read “dirt bike like” as part of the description by the fourth victim. But that’s not the issue. This pervert’s behavior is escalating. The last woman reported that he approached her outside her home. Shame on you readers who make jokes about this deviant behavior. It’s just not funny. I doubt that the women walking alone were laughing when the perp pulled down his pants and pulled out his penis.

  16. ROT FL says:

    Ahh Florida, the sweaty ball sack of America

  17. Oh WOW says:

    I think I know the guys name. I will be calling the Sheriffs office.

  18. jasonb says:

    …….. and don’t take matters into your own hands

    I say it all the time, people do whatever the hell they want in this town because there is virtually no police presence. On an average day I come across countless morons speeding like maniacs passed my house..on belle terre..on royal palms heading to town center Blvd is a favorite place where I’ve witnessed drivers doing 80mph that’s right 80mph going around that bend where an occasional deputy used to sit. Okay I know that this story is about a predator but my point is they do squat in this town about anything other than the occasional seatbelt campaign that really is needed to keep me safe from myself (eyeroll)! I lived in South Jersey before moving to this town 11 years ago. I used to complain about getting pulled over by the local police for a burned out taillight or overdue inspection sticker by state police that were in my town and everywhere you went. But after seeing what happens when you live in a town/state where you damn near have to commit a felony or buckle up to get noticed by the fcs…all these guys running for sheriff here and my question is this…what is going to change when you take office? Palm Coast is expanding faster than some people (myself included)would like and yeah it brings jobs but it also brings more traffic and bigger problems like crime..I like growth and don’t need to live in Mayberry but I also don’t want my town turning into Daytona either. I don’t want to sound like an alarmist saying it’s all doom and gloom, but you can’t tell me that this place hasn’t been teetering on the verge of going to the point of no return. This town needs some tough love to stop the cancer before it spreads any further. Hear that new sheriff?….the inmates are running the asylum, and no decent person is safe!

    He comes up to me and starts doing that I am going to point down there and laugh my butt off. Should provide some quick shrinkage and a get away…. *smirk*
