JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A series of lewd incidents over the past several months ranging from Mandarin to Mayport has police looking for one person.
According to a news release from Jacksonville Sheriff's Office spokesperson Melissa Bujeda, the first incident was in September 2010.
In all incidents, the suspect drove alongside the victims in a newer model Black Volkswagen Beetle and began talking to them.
