North Huntingdon police are seeking potential victims of a man accused of exposing himself to at least two women recently at local stores.

Harold Lee Thacker, 35, of West Virginia, surrendered to authorities on Friday after police issued a news release earlier in the day asking for the public's help in identifying the suspect involved in the two incidents.

North Huntingdon police accused Thacker of exposing himself to a woman while in the aisle of the township's Walmart store on Feb. 23. The second incident occurred on March 11, in the parking lot of Dollar General along Route 30.

Investigators said video surveillance and photograph tied both incidents to the same man.

Thacker was arraigned on Friday night on two charges each of indecent exposure and disorderly conduct. He remained in the Westmoreland County Jail on Monday after failing to post bond, according to court records.

Thacker has asked to be represented by a public defender, who will be assigned before his preliminary hearing, scheduled for Wednesday, according to District Judge Douglas Weimer's office.

Anyone with additional information is asked to call North Huntingdon police at 724-863-8800.
