Sterling Police were searching for a man and a pickup truck in connection with allegations of public indecency involving young girls.

“A female juvenile reported seeing a white male masturbating in a dark blue full-sized pickup with a light-colored wave or design on the side of the pickup, as he drove by her,” said a statement from Sterling Police.

The girl told police the truck drove by her and another girl twice; the third time they saw it as they were walking in the area of Dillon Avenue and West Le Fevre Road just before 5 p.m. Monday, July 7, 2014.

Police said the man in the truck was in his 30s, unshaved, and had short brown or light brown hair.  He was wearing a white t-shirt.

Police shared a picture of a pickup truck, which they said matched the description of the suspect vehicle, taken near the time and place where the incident happened.  The truck was described as a dark blue, single cab full-sized pickup with a light-colored wave or design along the side.

Anyone with information about the truck or the driver was asked to contact Sterling Police at (815) 632-6640 or Whiteside County Crime Stoppers at (815) 625-7867.  Tips can also be emailed to tipline@sterling-il.gov.
