Somerset County Prosecutor Michael H. Robertson, Chief of County Detectives John W. Fodor, and Hillsborough Chief of Police Darren Powell announced that the Hillsborough Township Police Department is seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the individual who is responsible for incidents of peering/lewdness within the Township.
According to authorities, on Sept. 14th, at approximately 10 p.m., a naked male was observed on surveillance video near the rear door and in the front of a residence on Triangle Road. The light-skinned male appears to be wearing a black wig, black shoes, and a black cloth covering his face.
Officials say on Nov. 1st at approximately 7 p.m., a resident of Meadowbrook Drive reported that she observed a naked male at the back door of her residence. The individual was captured on surveillance video at the residence and was observed peering into the house. He is described a light-skinned male wearing a black wig, black shoes with white stripes, and a bandana covering his face. Police believe that it is the same individual in both of the above incidents.
Two additional incidents of peering/lewdness occurred within the Township on July 31st (naked male near a residence on South Triangle Road-no further description) and September 28th (a light-skinned male with dark shoulder length wavy hair, wearing a white sweatshirt, dark pants, and a baseball cap exposed himself to a female resident of Columbia Common). It is unknown if the July 31st and September 28th incidents are related to those captured on the surveillance footage. Police are releasing a still image taken from the surveillance footage in an attempt to identify the individual.
