Dallas police seek naked backyard dancer


DALLAS (AP) — Dallas police are looking for a man who they say repeatedly sneaks into backyards, dances around naked and then runs away.

Police believe the man has been exposing himself in the same neighborhood since 2005. The most recent incident was on Sept. 30.

Police say he usually climbs a fence or goes through a gate and either dances naked or jumps in a swimming pool naked. Police say he also has danced naked on top of a backyard air conditioning unit.

Police say they're looking for a pudgy man who is about 6 feet tall and covers his face while dancing.

Dallas Police Senior Cpl. Janice Crowther says police want to catch him before it escalates into something worse.
