Indecent Exposure Shocks Woman, Young Daughter
A woman and her 5-year-old daughter saw way more than they wanted to during a shopping trip at 1:05 p.m. Wednesday.
A man fondled and exposed himself to the woman and her daughter, before leaving the parking lot. The man was described as being in his 20s with black hair in a shaggy bowl cut.
Police were reviewing video footage and were tracking the suspect’s license plate number.
Letters from Prison
An elderly woman was worried that an inmate in Racine had contacted her about art and the inmate was going to be released from jail.
The woman contacted police at 12:47 p.m. Wednesday to report suspicious letters from the jail inmate. He read an article in the newspaper about her art, she said, and he contacted her about his wanting to explore an art path. The woman was concerned because the man was a registered sex offender who was going to be released from jail on Friday.
Police reviewed the letter, which was written in May, and noted the man was responding to the article about the woman and seemed to relate to the woman’s story of being abused as the man claimed he was.

A therapist working with the woman contacted police at 10:48 a.m. Wednesday to report the woman possibly was a fraud victim involving a suspect in Nigeria.
