    Police have released a composite sketch as they continue to search for a man they say exposed himself to three teenage girls last month in Seekonk, Massachusetts.

    The man, who has not been identified, is accused of exposing himself to the girls on March 20 in the parking lot of a Target store at 79 Commerce Way.

    That week, Seekonk Police released surveillance photos of a man police say they would like to identify. Wednesday, they issued a sketch made by New Bedford Police Det. Lt. Scott Carola, who met with the victims.

    Police say the three teenagers came to the police department and reported noticing a man at Target who appeared to be watching them from a distance around 8 p.m.

    Police say the teens became wary of the man and went to a register to check out, at which time the man was still watching them.
