“My girlfriend had this horrible experience in Dumbarton Oaks Park around 5:30pm this evening.” (Tues.)

“Dear PoPville,

Nearly tripped over a man servicing himself in Dumbarton Oaks Park this afternoon. Older white man, heavy-set with a green hat and white hair, dark sunglasses. He was poorly hidden and leaning against the side of the trail that I was running on.

I spotted him and got a weird vibe but thought he might be resting from a walk. I couldn’t tell he wasn’t wearing clothes until I was literally right next to him.

I reported it to non-emergency, but just putting this out here in case anyone else has seen him. Or maybe he sees this and decides to stay home next time? He was spotted along the Wisconsin Avenue side of the park, just south of the Naval Observatory.

Shoutout to Lisa and her dog Max for just being there and for helping me find my way out of the park.”
