Indecent exposure

Two witnesses reported to police that they were riding their horses Sunday morning along a trail at Dead Horse Ranch State Park when they turned the corner to find a man jogging naked.  The man is described as in his early twenties, Caucasian, about 5-feet, 8-inches tall, with a thin to medium build, sandy brown/blonde hair wearing only white tennis shoes and socks.

The 17-year-old rider yelled that he was "sick" and then gave chase on his horse. The jogger got scared and ran toward the irrigation ditch to the river and was lost in the bushes.

The 17-year old told the policeman that he is sure that he would be able to recognize the naked man since he has seen him running around the park naked before.  He was upset because he knew there were

children in the area.  He was not able to give much identifying information except that the man was very thin and had a small nose.
