    A sketch of a suspect wanted for exposing himself in public has been released by police in Massachusetts, and they're asking for help with identifying him.

    Fitchburg police released the sketch of the suspect Thursday, saying there had been five incidents of him exposing himself in the Coggshall Park and Forest Hill Cemetery area. The latest incident happened Wednesday night.

    Police say all victims have been adults.

    "We have committed extra patrols to it," said Fitchburg Police Chief Ernest Martineau. "Our detective unit is working on it as much as they can. This is really a priority of ours right now."

    The suspect is described as being about 5'10" tall with a medium athletic build, has dark hair with light colored eyes and a beard and/or mustache.

    Police are also warning Fitchburg residents to stay alert and to avoid walking or running alone, especially at night.

    "I'm optimistic that we will make some headway in this case because of the amount of attention that it is gathering," Martineau said.

    Anyone with information about the suspect is asked to call Fitchburg police at 978-345-4355.
