The Knox County Sheriff’s Office is asking residents that may be using the Kokosing Gap Trail to be on the lookout for a male that may be exposing himself to trail users. The sheriff’s office has not received any reports directly, however information has been relayed to Kenyon Security. The reports have usually been a few days after the incident.

The male is described as white, 30s-40s, slender, usually wearing jeans and a sweatshirt. The incidents have taken place mostly from 3pm-5pm between the Brown Environmental Center and Mount Vernon. The Sheriff’s office is asking anyone who may encounter this type of incident to call (740) 397-3333 immediately.

We will also be trying to enhance our patrol efforts in this area.
