Massachusetts police are asking the public to take a good look at a man caught on video, accused of flashing a jogging mother twice while she took an early morning run.
Aia, a personal trainer who served in the Israeli military, was taking an early morning jog down Memorial Drive in Cambridge on July 18 when a man wearing black shorts and a dark grey and black shirt jogged toward her. As he passed her, the man allegedly exposed himself.
At first, Aia let it go, giving the man the benefit of the doubt, but when he exposed himself again, the 6-foot-1 single mom gave chase. She told the state police that could see the man “was very scared” as he tried to back away from her.
“I told him I’m going to get him. ‘I’m going to get you, darling.’ It was not his lucky day. Because I decided to chase him down.”
Aia said she caught up with the suspect and pinned him down, but he ultimately escaped when no one stopped to help her. The man ran off when Aia let him go and called 911 herself.
“With all due respect, people, what does it look like? Romantic conversation? I’m holding him down yelling, ‘Call the police,'” Aia said during a press conference after the incident.
State police described the suspect as a white male in his late 30s to early 40s with a heavy build and short dark hair with a receding hairline. He had on black shoes with white soles and was wearing an Apple watch.
“Hell no,” Aia said. “I was not ready to see his little [expletive]. I’m not doing that no. Just no. It’s not right.”
Anyone with any information on the suspect is urged to contact Trooper Martin Concannon at the State Police Barracks at 617-727-6780.
